Plato for CFO: Strategic Financial Management

Voka Vlaams-Brabant launches a new Plato development track for CFO’s. We bring together a small group of maximum 15 CFO’s from international companies or from medium to large Belgian companies.

Participants get the opportunity to meet (and get to know) their peers and discuss in an open and safe environment topics and challenges that will have a big impact the next coming years, such as:

  • Leadership, from a Finance perspective
  • Attracting & retaining financial talent
  • Financing projects (cfr. New legislation, allowing to pledge moveable property)
  • Finance as a true business partner
  • Digitalization in Finance
  • Designing a sound M&A strategy
  • Data & Analytics
  • Intelligent automation: Robotics & AI
  • Risk & Fraud Management

This Plato development track will bring you new insights, and it will allow you to share your challenges with fellow participants, obtaining new ideas & fresh perspectives. Excellent guest speakers will be selected, sharing their expertise & best in class practices.
