Current Developments and Best Practices for Today's CFOs and Controllers

176  |  TSCPA In Person Events  |  Update  |  Scheduled

Description

In today's rapidly changing world, finance professionals are required to wear many hats and are often the keys to the organization's success. 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. This seminar has been designed to give the CFO and controller the skills needed to lead their organizations into the rapidly changing decade. The author has been in the trenches, having held positions in finance and senior management, and understands the issues from both perspectives. Constant evoution is another unique aspect of this seminar. We know change is occurring at an exponential rate, so certain chapters dealing with current domestic and global economic conditions are included along with current technical issues on the cloud and social media. The seminar is updated as necessary throughout the year to include the most recent developments.
