CONFERENCE | "How to transform your finance function into a high performing business partner?"

Solvay Brussels School and Financial Media have joined forces and created the Solvay Finance Academy. They are pleased to invite you to the conference:
"How to transform your finance function into a high performing business partner?".

The Challenge of finance function today

You experience daily that the demand for high-quality real-time information and strategic analytical support is increasing. Compliance and risk requirements are higher, and the financial function is considered to deliver more added value to the operation.

Routine work disappears and work processes are completely redesigned. In summary: the challenge of every finance function today is to provide better, faster, more in-depth service for internal customers ("the business") and management. Or, in other words, realize the ambition of becoming an indispensable business partner.

In this evening session, we inspire you how you can rebuild your finance into a high performing function and how you can become the driving force of it.
