Portland, Maine (PRWEB) May 09, 2014
Controllers from organizations in a variety of industries are facing new challenges not only to manage core finance department tasks and staff but also to demonstrate leadership skills that will help guide their firms in the coming months and years. To meet this growing demand for continuous training, the Institute of Finance and Management (IOFM) is convening its fourth annual Controller's Conference and Expo in Chicago at The Westin O’Hare, September 14-16.
“The Controller's Conference provides senior finance managers with the opportunity to learn from some of the top experts in the country and to share best practices with their peers at roundtable discussions,” points out RD Whitney, Executive Director at IOFM. “Year after year, controllers tell us that this summit offers them a level of discourse that they just don't get anywhere else.”
Among the top speakers at the Summit is David Kotz, former Inspector General at the Securities & Exchange Commission and now a director at Berkeley Research Group. Mr. Kotz will speak on a very timely topic: the role of controllers in fraud investigations. Other top financial executives from such organizations as Sprint, Mayo Clinic, Babson Capital Management, Chesapeake Energy, Kingston Technology, ArcelorMittal and Ernst & Young will also lead sessions, detailed in the Controller's Conference Agenda.
