CFO and CIOs together have a significant opportunity to guide their companies to success as businesses face global economic uncertainty, an increasing technology-driven world, changing consumer preferences, and other uncontrollable factors that affect corporate performance.

CFOs, CIOs and other professionals can influence their corporate and philanthropic entities more than ever before as priorities change, and as consumer demands pivot between the creative and the altruistic.

How?

  • by listening and being more open to emerging changes
  • by breaking down silos to gain visibility of reality through more valuable conversations
  • by discovering new ways of using technology to instil trust and unlock value
  • by guiding their organisations safely and securely through shifting priorities and changing privacy demands, and
  • by solving problem others could only dream about in past generations.

Remember it is the role of chartered accountants, wherever possible, to provide everyone across the corporation with the right information, in a concise and easily accessible format, to make the right decisions. It goes way beyond control and audits, infrastructure and applications to the point of providing people with the most insightful information to make smarter decisions. Engage now with technology and human endeavour and make a significant difference now.
