TGO’s CFO Summit Series is designed to provide a forum for CFOs and other senior financial executives to discuss real strategies and solutions for common business issues.

Each session will have a specific topic and will feature guest speakers from a variety of industries and backgrounds, to facilitate energetic discussions and provide ideas and strategies for tackling current challenges.

Real Issues, Real Strategies, Real Solutions

Although the CFO Summit Series is optimal for networking with other CFO’s, we structure each session to address the concerns and challenges faced in the real world. Topics include reporting, budgeting, procurement, corporate governance, security and audit, business intelligence, and successful implementations.

We hope you will join us for the series – we look forward to seeing you there!
