In today's rapidly changing world, finance professionals are required to wear many hats and are often the keys to the success of the organization.

On one hand, they need to be abreast of the latest proven financial skills for making the best decisions, and on the other hand they need the best skills to motivate, manage and lead people. Being pigeon-holed into one area or another is neither good for career building nor for the good of the organization.

We'll cover the latest issues that all CFOs and controllers need to know about and provide how-to guidance to allow for immediate use in their organizations.
