The evaluations from the past CFO Days have shown that you appreciate that we have shifted the focus during CFO Day from developments within finance, to a dialogue with CFOs and finance leaders about developments which dominate today’s world and will dominate tomorrow’s world.

During the brainstorming with many of you about the theme of CFO Day 2019, it became clear that you have a need to focus on the societal impact of a number of developments.

Developments which you are worried about, but where you also see opportunities. The theme of CFO Day 2019 will be ‘Building Bridges’.

We will discuss how we, as companies and CFOs, can deal with these developments:

  • How do we build a bridge to groups who nowadays are still side-lined too much in all parts of society and especially at the top?
  • How do we build a bridge to a multicultural society?
  • How do we build a bridge to an aging society and keep older people longer active on the job market?
  • How do we build a bridge to preserving our planet and how do we build a real sustainable society?
  • How do we build a bridge to those who are on the losing side of digitization?

  • What will we as CFOs do differently in concrete terms and what steps will we take to find a (financial) model which is sustainable from both a business and a societal point of view?

    We wish to enter into this dialogue not just with you, but also with the CFOs of tomorrow and the day after tomorrow. We therefore challenge you to bring along a young potential of 30 years or younger. Do they see things through the same eyes as you or do they broaden your field of vision? Discover this together with us during CFO Day 2019.
