CFO Post Event Report, November 2018


We gathered 26 experts to contribute their insights to ADAPT’s 10th CFO Edge under the theme of “Resilience and Risk: Competing in the Digital Age”.

Our aim was to provide practical advice for a modern CFO, to help you grow as a leader today, to better prepare for tomorrow and to leverage opportunities ahead. The role of the CFO has gone well beyond robust financial systems and reporting. Disruption makes it harder to forecast and model. The digital age is reducing margins and increasing risk as standard business models are challenged The CFO must ask how to best use resources to drive productivity, efficiency and performance? How to protect existing revenue and margins? All whilst maintaining quality and compliance across the financial function.

Meanwhile the emerging revenue strategist CFO needs to consider how to create new revenue streams, make better informed business decisions, leverage emerging technologies, and manage the complexities around them. If the CEO is the driver of digital transformation, then the modern CFO is the navigator. Your role has switched from being an enabler rather than a gatekeeper. Step up as the chief growth officer – and the revenue strategist. The resounding message of the day was, “will you be the butcher or the turkey?” Our journey gave CFOs new knowledge and skills, and introductions to people and solutions that we hope will help you to lead in these challenging times. See you at the Edge.
