The Seattle FP&A Board meeting

The Seattle FP&A Board will meet on the 3rd of March 2020 for the fifth time. The professional debate will be devoted to the subject of the FP&A Team Building.

Modern FP&A professionals are expected to meet many requirements and to have a broad skill set hardly found in one human being. No wonder, FP&A positions are among the hardest-to-fill. One of the solutions is FP&A team building, where the skills and talents of the team members simply complement each other. 

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 Seattle chapter are limited. We are inviting only 25 participants to join the event. 

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