Responding to Financial Disruption: Understanding the Impacts of Automation and Centralization

New advancements in financial technology occur at a dizzying pace, a trend that can leave many CFOs with the difficult task of separating the noise from critical developments. Two areas in which these developments have converged with wider global trends are outsourcing and automation. As the prevalence and availability of outsourcing leads to shrinking financial teams, CFOs are having to find the right balance between outsourcing, automation, and retaining top talent in country.

The CFO of the Future: Focusing on the Human Element of Finance in Tomorrow’s Business Environment

As one CFO Forum participant noted in our February forum, “Reports don’t create results, it’s what people do with them.” Indeed, from driving employee engagement to developing accountability structures, today’s CFO must not only have an astute financial mind but must also be a talented leader. It is a task that will become even more difficult as AI and outsourcing play an increasingly larger role.

Forum Format

AmCham’s CFO Forums are hosted on a quarterly, rotating basis by participating member companies, featuring up to twenty participants and an interactive program that runs approximately one-and-a-half hours.

The forum host typically participates as one of two to three presenters, all presenting individually on agreed upon, forum-related topics that open the floor to active engagement from all participants.
