Unlocking Digital Growth

London |

Overview

Companies are implementing digital strategies faster than ever before, alongside this, consumer expectations are constantly evolving and setting new benchmarks across the industry. Successful digital transformation requires an organisation that can predict, pivot and adapt to these changes with speed. Chief Financial Officers are tasked with guiding their companies through this transformation, responsible for smart investment, balancing the sometimes-conflicting c-suite and board, and driving business model innovation in order to support new digital products and services.

In this fairly unchartered territory, how are traditional organisations approaching digital growth strategies whilst future-proofing their business? What can be learned from digitally native companies who are disrupting legacy processes? How can the champions of digital innovation create a widespread understanding that digital revenue streams are critical to future success? How can they establish performance metrics to measure the success of strategies? Faced with the challenges of a skills gap, restrictive legacy processes and siloed organisational structure – what can they do to overcome these obstacles and lead their businesses towards a more agile, digital-first future?

The Financial Times, in partnership with Workday, is delighted to host this private editorial dinner for cross-sector CFOs and finance leaders to discuss how they can implement organisational agility to drive transformation and grow at scale in today’s fast-paced digital environment.
