Vietnam CFO Forum 2017 - Future of Finance

There is no doubt that the role of finance has evolved significantly in recent years, and that the days of finance merely acting as a cost-saving function are well behind us, but what is still far from certain is how finance functions will continue to evolve to remain relevant and to keep up with changing business needs.

Those who are unravelling the value of data, who are implementing robotics into their shared service centres, who are pushing the boundaries and exploring machine learning opportunities, will stand out from their competitors and will truly transform. However, technology is only one part of the puzzle. With this role revolution, comes a need for a new type of finance professional, one not restricted to “the back office” or to reams of excel spreadsheets, but one who can communicate and influence business strategy as a result of interpreting the numbers.

Vietnam CFO Forum 2017 will take place on 22nd November 2017 at Sheraton, Saigon, Ho Chi Minh City. The Forum will be held on the theme of “Future of Finance” and is hosted by Vietnam Financial Officers (VCFO) with the support of Japan Association for CFOs (JACFO), and the Association of Certified Accountants UK (ACCA).

Vietnam CFO Forum 2017 will welcome over 300 delegates, including Chief Financial Officers, Senior Financial Analysts who are members of VCFO, JACFO, ACCA and the International Association of Financial Executives Institutes (IAFEI). There will be experts from domestic and international financial institutions, Chairmen and Chief Executive Officers of top enterprises in Vietnam.

Vietnam CFO Forum 2017, now in it’s 9th year, is the leading cross-industry forum dedicated to providing tangible insight from leading innovative finance functions. This event has exclusive, expert-level insight from the best practitioners in the business!
