On 24th & 25th October in Frankfurt, finance leaders and innovators will gather at the Financial Forecasting & Planning Innovation Summit to discuss and share best practices in the forecasting and planning processes.
In the current business environment, change has become a daily obstacle which organisations have to overcome, therefore it has become paramount for finance leaders and innovators to work with these changes, and develop a systematic approach that links strategic plans, budgets and forecasts together. Building on IE. – Innovation Enterprise’s history of successful, insightful summits within this sector, the Financial Forecasting & Planning Innovation Summit will bring together 150+ senior finance leaders in the largest financial centre in continental Europe.
With over 25 highly regarded keynote speakers including Chief Finance Officer, Coca-Cola, Chief Finance Officer, Bonhams & Vice President, Thomson Reuters this summit will provide attendees with an exclusive insight into how FP&A is the instrument that allows us to evaluate what the consequences are likely to be in the future of a decision made in the present, through evaluation of historical data.
“For many firms, the key is to become what’s called an “analytic competitor”– a business that is fast, flexible, and precise when it must reallocate resources in line with changing patterns of demand, cost, and opportunity” said Emma Flanagan International Events Director for IE. What this means for FP&A teams is that they require the ability to access, collect and analyse both financial data and forward-looking non-financial measures such as trends in customer demand or commodity prices.
Attendees will gain insight into how to become “analytic competitors” by hearing real case examples on topics such as; Managing Costs in Fast Changing Times, Bonhams, M&A – Remedies for Success, Thomson Reuters, Increasing Shareholders’ Wealth in Times of Scarce Liquidity, Worsening Credit Market and High Cost of Capital, Sidma S.A, and many more.
