The FP&A Innovation Summit provides a wide range of topics that really touches the "real world" aspect of Finance
London (PRWEB UK) 11 March 2015
Financial Planning & Analysis (FP&A) is increasingly being used by large multinational companies to gain competitive advantage through the development of budgets and forecasts. However, many finance professionals do not utilise the analysis aspect of FP&A, mainly due to the mechanical process of putting together and collating the data which is very time consuming. This means that the process of FP&A is not as an effective tool as it is meant to be and senior executives are less able to anticipate both positive and negative events, as well as opportunities and threats. The FP&A Innovation Summit in London seeks to develop a systemic approach that links plans, budgets and forecasts together. The summit offers delegates access to 25+ industry expert keynote presentations, the opportunity to engage in panel sessions, access to on-demand presentations post summit and 20+ hours of networking opportunities.
The summit unites thought leaders and innovators in the field of FP&A to cover all the hot topics and challenges facing finance executives today. Interested in hearing about employee engagement and finance transformation? The technology advances influencing financial performance? Or forecasting in a highly regulated industry? The summit will answer all of these questions and more, also placing focus on driving growth through allocating resources effectively, managing risks and venturing into new markets. “The FP&A Innovation Summit brings together a variety of industries, all looking to solve similar problems. It’s the only summit of its kind that aims to innovate, teach and expand delegate knowledge of FP&A and the Finance function as a whole." said the International Events Director, Aaron Fraser.
This year we have a high-calibre line-up of speakers from a cross-section of industries.
