Regional manager update  

Your Invitation…It’s Conference season!  

At our annual Chairs forum in February, we shared the events we offer locally would address the key challenges our members are facing. The rapid pace of technological change is raising the expectations of finance leaders and disrupting the industry. In reaction to the changing landscape, a new breed of CFOs who operate as a strategic link to finance and technology is emerging. 

Next month we have a suite of opportunities for the innovators, leaders and implementers your business with strategies to navigate through the disruptive forces of business and explore in depth, the growth opportunities that exist and how successful organisations embrace disruption. 

I’m also going to be contacting you to see if we can help Marymead in raising 1.3 million in a “Buy a Brick” appeal to build short –term emergency and crisis accommodation for children and families in our region. Keep an eye in your email box for more details.

Talk soon
