Global business has never experienced change at the scale and speed observed in recent years. FP&A teams need to be multi-skilled and multi-functional in this rapidly evolving environment. It allows them to develop new ‘playbooks’ to overcome challenging changes, taking on roles that are not typical for traditional management accounting.
Over the years, we have met with thousands of International FP&A Board members in 29 chapters across 16 countries and have conducted several research papers to ascertain the critical roles for building a world-class FP&A Team.
Join the face-to-face Zurich FP&A Board and discuss trends in FP&A skills and capabilities.
The International FP&A Board was created in London, UK, in 2013 to guide the development and promotion of the best practices in modern corporate Financial Planning & Analytics (FP&A). Since then, further Board chapters have been successfully established in 29 cities across 16 countries, identifying and supporting new global trends, skill sets and thought leadership.
The FP&A Board is exclusive to senior finance practitioners in active employment (at CFO, FD, and Head of Finance levels) who represent large local and international organizations (revenue from £0.5B). Please note there are limited places in the meeting room. Meeting invitations are extended to 25 senior finance practitioners only.
Board meetings are complimentary, vendor-agnostic and by invitation only.
Safety: FP&A Trends Group will take all measures to provide a safe and collaborative environment.
