The global pandemic has brought about huge changes for organisations all over the world. With change comes challenges, but also opportunities. While the recent unprecedented global event has highlighted the value that Finance can offer, there are still many ways that CFOs and their Finance functions can not only remain highly relevant but improve their organisations by supporting business growth and ensuring financial stability.

Recent events have emphasised the fact that Finance impacts all elements of a business strategy and just how critical the function is in ensuring business continuity. And as we approach a new era of expectations and different ways of working, Finance’s ability to adapt rapidly, control spend for their organisations, and mitigate risk through clear decision making, has never been more important.  

With this in mind, we have found something that has piqued our interest and we would like to share with you – Proactis ReThink ’21 – the annual flagship event from spend management experts, Proactis.


An event perfectly suited for Finance professionals


Proactis ReThink ’21

is an online event, taking place from 09 – 11 November, which will bring together Finance professionals, thought-leaders, and spend management solution experts from across the public and private sectors. This three-day online event is designed specifically to help challenge Finance professionals to stop and look internally at their organisation to see how they can add transformative value to their business, changing the landscape of their workplace for the new look business world.

The event will include dynamic thought leadership presentations focused on the future of Finance, and Procurement, as well as current best practice and trends. Furthermore, through the strong relationships Proactis has with its customer network, three customers have come forward to discuss their digital transformation success stories with the ReThink ’21 audience.

Representatives from Four Seasons Health Care, Caerphilly County Borough Council and The University of Essex  will be leading sessions over the three days to discuss their digital transformational journeys with  Proactis. These customer success stories cover an ever-evolving finance strategy, a transformation from manual to fully automated process, and the rapid implementation of the full Source-to-Pay solution.  

The event will be “kicked off” in style by England’s 2003 Rugby World Cup Winning Head Coach, Sir Clive Woodward OBE. His session – “Tackling Change” – will focus on how, whether in sport or business, the principles associated with creating high-performance teams remain the same, why it’s vital to embrace change, and how creating a culture of relentless learning can help teams and organisations adapt and succeed. As a renowned and innovative leader, driven by his determined approach to challenge and rethink the status quo and drive more efficient and effective operating methods, Sir Clive’s session will provide a strong start to Proactis ReThink ‘21. 

The event will also include a session hosted by finance expert, friend of Generation CFO and Founder of The Strength in the Numbers Show, Andrew Codd CGMA MBA. 

Andrew’s session – “Doing More With Less: The Power of People-led Transformation in a Digital Age” – will explore the importance of finance leaders defining and demystifying value creation in a digital world. He’ll also cover how a proven structure can ensure Finance does what it needs to do, and how to make meaningful investments to help people transform and keep up with the pace of digital change, so they don’t get left behind.  

In addition, Proactis will also be hosting a special panel discussion – “Beyond Technology: Unlocking Success in Digital Transformation” – featuring an expert panel of industry leaders, which will delve into how technology makes innovation possible, but it’s an organisation’s capacity to embrace that innovation that will make all the difference in today’s ever-competitive business environment.
