Finance Transformation: Embracing New Technologies


Transforming the Finance function goes deeper than upgrading technology. Transformation means using that technology to fundamentally change the role of Finance — from reactive to proactive, reporting to predicting, observing to advising.

Taking on this new role will require Finance professionals to develop new capabilities and embrace innovation.

Join us to learn about the shifting priorities of future-ready Finance professionals and how innovative technology like Corporate Performance Management (CPM) can take your FP&A to the next level.

Presented by Wayne Slater, Prophix

Described as an innovative marketer and results-driven business development specialist, Wayne has measurable success spanning multiple industries and channels with a proven track record for increasing awareness, driving engagement, and revenue creation.
