The CFO Management Forum celebrates the role of finance leaders in business by bringing together Chief Financial Officers and other key officers of major companies operating in Cyprus to discuss the latest trends/developments in the world of finance and the main challenges facing their profession.
The 18th CFO Management Forum will focus on the economic aftermath of the pandemic and the impact that the war in Ukraine has had on an already wounded economy. It will look at the new era of inflation that is beginning and how high interest rates are complicating the CFO function. The key themes of this year’s Forum are:
• Inflation Outlook for 2023 and beyond
• How can CFOs rise to meet the challenge of soaring inflation?
• Is raising prices the best answer to offset increased costs?
• How will a potential change to the ultra-low interest rate environment affect their overall strategy?
• How CFOs and their organisations are planning for the post-COVID world: Transforming the financial function to improve resilience and drive a faster recovery.
• How is technology changing the role of the CFO?
The IN Business CFO Awards are presented to distinguished CFOs and other finance professionals operating in Cyprus in recognition of their contribution and achievements over the past year.
