The Toronto FP&A Board will meet on the 26th of March 2020 for the the fourth time. The professional debate will be devoted to the subject of Driver Based and Predictive FP&A.

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