The Geneva FP&A Board meeting

The ninth meeting of the Geneva FP&A Board will take place on Monday, 25th February 2019 to debate on the popular subject of Zero-Based Budgeting

The International FP&A Board was created in London, UK, in 2013 to guide the development and promotion of the best practices in Financial Planning & Analytics (FP&A). Since then, the Board chapters were successfully established in 21 cities and 14 countries of Europe, the Middle East, Asia, Australia, and North America to identify and support new global trends, skill sets and thought leadership in modern corporate financial planning and analysis. 

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 organisations.

The meetings are complimentary, vendor-agnostic and by invitation only.
