Seattle FP&A Board meeting

The Seattle FP&A Board will meet on 14 March 2019 for the third time. The professional debate will be devoted to the subject of FP&A Business Partnering.

The Board was established in London, UK in 2013 and now successfully operates in 21 cities and 14 countries of Europe, the Middle East, Asia, Australia and North America. This is a leading professional think-tank that combines expertise of many senior finance practitioners. Its mission is to identify and support new global trends, skill sets and thought leadership in modern corporate financial planning and analysis (FP&A).

The FP&A Board meetings are exclusive to senior finance practitioners at CFO, FD and Head of Finance level in active employment from large local and international organizations. The meetings are complimentary, vendor-agnostic and by invitation only.

At this stage, we are inviting only 25 members to join the Seattle FP&A Board.
