GREENSBORO, N.C. (PRWEB) April 10, 2013
Innovation in accounts payable operations will be the theme for “Top Gun,” an upcoming best practices conference sponsored by APEX Analytix, a leading provider of services and software to safeguard disbursements, identify fraud and improve performance across the procure-to-pay cycle.
Scheduled for April 14-16 in Clearwater, Fla., the conference is tailored for executives in accounts payable, financial shared services, and fraud and risk roles in the largest companies in the world. Attendees will have an opportunity to network with their peers and to focus on innovative ways to improve organizational performance.
“Though driving process efficiency is critical for shared services, some of the greatest performance breakthroughs are the result of new innovations that challenge the status quo,” says Steve Yurko, CEO of APEX Analytix. “Our Top Gun conference provides a great venue for executives to learn about innovations used by their peers and to explore ways to take their operations to a new level.”
The Top Gun program will feature expert speakers from nearly two dozen companies, including industry leaders in banking and finance, computing, consumer goods, defense systems, entertainment, manufacturing, pharmaceuticals, retail, telecommunications and transportation. Presentations will focus on:
- How to create tangible, cross-company value
- How to design an effective a global payment control framework
- Case studies in the use of technology by financial shared services centers
- Trends in procure-to-pay
- Unique challenges faced by retailers
- How metrics and reporting can motivate improved performance
- New techniques for driving efficiency and cost reduction
A Humorous Keynote Focused on Leadership
Keynote speaker Jeff Havens will kick off the conference by delivering a serious message couched in a heavy dose of humor. His talk “Unleash Your Inner Tyrant!” will help executives become better leaders by showing them what to avoid.
A Phi Beta Kappa graduate of Vanderbilt University, Havens began his career as a high school English teacher. He later followed his father Rex Havens into the world of stand-up comedy, where he worked with some of the biggest names in the industry. The impulse to teach never faded, though, and Havens soon found a way to combine his passion for entertaining with his passion for sharing meaningful content. He since has delivered presentations for a wide range of corporate clients, including General Electric, Ford Motor Company, USBank and McDonald’s.
Havens also is a regular guest on Fox Business News and has been featured in BusinessWeek, The Wall Street Journal, CNBC, AOL and dozens of other media outlets. He is author of eight books, including “Unleash Your Inner Tyrant!” and “How to Get Fired!”
