CFO Edge 2019 | Sydney

Are we ready for 2020?
Systemic Change, Strategic Value and the Modern CFO.

ADAPT’s 11th CFO Edge event occurs on the precipice of 2020. We challenge if Australasian organisations and CFOs are as prepared for the immediate future as they planned and hoped? Over the last 8 year of national CFO events, ADAPT has seen the CFO role evolve far beyond finance, to emerge as strategic leader, transformation enabler and navigator of the challenges, opportunities, risks and pitfalls of modern digital business.
