We are back! Join Generation CFO for the CFO Debate on 29th September at The Union Club, Soho.

What is the CFO Debate?

Our CFO Debate is a great mix of people from large enterprises to start-ups, from CFOs to early-career digital natives, and we all benefit from an open exchange of ideas and points of view.

The evening is an opportunity for you to ask questions to a panel and the assembled community; share your own thoughts and find your place in the wider community.

Evening themes include digital skills, growth mindset, innovation process, agility, change strategy, culture, tools, solutions and much more.

Past panellists of the CFO Debates have included senior finance leaders from Starbucks, Deliveroo, Vodafone and growth-stage technology companies, plus thought leaders and research professionals.

Why should you attend the CFO Debate?

It is time to add the Digital Age to the Finance Function! The CFO and their management team are at a digital crossroads.

Maintaining the status quo is no longer an option yet most finance teams do not know where to start or which data journey to go on.

More clarity, greater agility and deeper enablement through new learning and new partnerships are needed, so Generation CFO has created a place for you to meet, grow and thrive in a changing world.

Our engaged community of like-minded accounting and finance leaders are shaping their futures with new purpose, new capability and new direction which is only made possible by the boom in data and the digital world.

Join our community and find your route to a bolder, better digital finance function!

What can you expect from the CFO Debate?

Generation CFO founder Christopher Argent will welcome you to the community and chair an informal but informative panel debate on “real world” challenges and solutions facing finance in the digital age.

Each panel includes three subject experts in a highly relevant theme, inspiring people who have worked with CFOs and Finance to deliver the change and transformation needed in our community.
This is a non-technical forum for you to learn, network, partner. There is no sales pitch, just like-minded peers and agnostic leads who know how to get stuff done in the real world and enjoy themselves while doing it.
