The Brussels FP&A Board meeting

The sixth meeting of the Brussels FP&A Board will take place on the 5th of November 2019 to debate on Beyond Budgeting Philosophy. 

It is commonly agreed that the traditional budgeting process is time-consuming and costly. It rarely focuses on strategy and adds little value. Although traditional budgets have evolved over the years, they can hardly meet the challenges of the modern economic and business environment. Join our global discussion on whether Beyond Budgeting is the best alternative and whether it is realistic to abandon the budget and transform the whole process.

The International FP&A Board was created in London (UK) in 2013 to guide the development and promotion of best practices in Financial Planning & Analysis (FP&A). Since then, the Board chapters were successfully established in 27 cities and 16 countries across Europe, the Middle East, Asia, Australia, and North America. Their aim is to identify and support new global trends, valued skill sets and leadership practices in modern corporate Financial Planning & Analysis. 

The FP&A Board is exclusive to senior finance practitioners in active employment (at CFO, FD and Head of Finance levels). Please note that places for the Brussels chapter are limited. We are inviting only 25 participants to join the event. 

The meeting is complimentaryvendor-agnostic and by-invitation-only.
