The Gherkin, London - Thursday 7th June 2018

Financial operations are being transformed as a result of cloud computing and analytics, together with new developments in artificial intelligence, blockchain ledgers and robotic process automation.

So as digital technologies enable greater automation of transaction processing, control, compliance and reporting, the finance function is ideally positioned to take on a more strategic partnering role, capturing and managing data more widely, to drive better planning, analysis and decision-making.

Finance Transformation has been spoken about for years, but few have realised the ideal state of minimising the effort on transactions processing and maximizing time spent on leading the business and helping navigate the best path forward.

Join us for an exclusive breakfast at The Gherkin on the 7th June and learn how technology can help organisations realise this aspirational state and become a true partner of the business.

Tim Wakeford, Vice President, Product Strategy at Workday and former CFO at Cushman & Wakefield, will explain why cloud is a key enabler of finance transformation and how a single system for finance and HR provides real time insight into finances and people - anytime, anywhere, and on any device.

The discussion will cover:
* Insight into organisations that are leading the way
* The role of technology in finance transformation
* The changing role of Finance function
* Deliver true business partnership while decreasing costs
* Guide the business with insight
* Consolidate and close with confidence
* Plan and prepare for what's next
