We hope to have a meaningful discussion about the role finance professionals can play in managing through tough times and in getting ready for the economic recovery to come.
Greensboro, N.C. (PRWEB) April 14, 2009
The challenges of a recessionary economy are taking top billing at an upcoming "Top Gun" conference sponsored by APEX Analytix, a leading provider of services and software for performance improvement, error prevention and fraud detection in accounts payable.
Scheduled for June 14-16 in Washington, D.C., the event is expected to draw finance, accounts payable, shared services and internal audit executives from many of the world's largest corporations. Top Gun participants get an opportunity to share best practices, network with their peers and learn how to improve their organization's performance.
"There is no doubt that the economy is still front and center, especially among those who are in a position to protect corporate profits and impact cash flow," said Michael Lustig, APEX Analytix CEO. "We hope to have a meaningful discussion about the role finance professionals can play in managing through tough times and in getting ready for the economic recovery to come."
Two keynote speakers at the spring 2009 Top Gun event will address their perspectives on the economy and the role attendees can play.
Consultant Bill Conerly, author of Businomics: From the Headlines to Your Bottomline: How to Profit in Any Economic Cycle, will discuss the importance of maintaining financial flexibility during a recession and will share the prevailing economic outlook for the nation, its financial markets and key industries. Conerly is principal of Conerly Consulting LLC and chief economist at abcInvesting.com. He also is a senior fellow at the National Center for Policy Analysis.
Master certified coach and author Madeleine Homan Blanchard will share techniques Top Gun attendees can use to lead teams through recessionary times.
