CFO Case Study Competition 2016 Programme Announced


With October just around the corner, and along with it the finals of The CFO Case Study Competition 2016, CharterQuest has released the event programme, which covers both the semi-finals and finals to be held on 13 and 14 October respectively, and showcases the teams, the judges, the post-event activities, and the background to the competition.

The programme will also feature a glimpse of The CharterQuest Case Study Center NPC's latest endeavour, The Future CFO Magazine, the cover graced by the rock-star of public speaking, Vusi Thembekwayo, as well as Team R.E.D, the team behind the competition. The event will feature keynotes from Professor Elias Links from the University of Stellenbosch Business School as The CFO Prestigious Award Presenter, while the charismatic Johnny Eliades will stand as MC.

It was inevitable that an international panel of judges from four countries on three continents with over 100 years of combined experience in finance, business, leadership and academia would be assembled. From Deon Fredericks (Telkom), Fabian Cazares (Philips), Jo Pohl (Telesure), Professor Cosmas Ambe (University of Limpopo), Aarti Takoordeen (JSE) and Imraan Soomra (Oceana Group), all the way to Bukkie Adewuyi (SizweNtsalubaGobodo), the panel not only brings a diverse opinion to the table but also expertise in multiple fields involved in the case study.

Valentine Nti, The CFO Project Executive Director, said:

"The 2016 detailed programme not only shows what will be happening during the global finals in October and the high impact CFOs, Business Leaders, plus other VIPs attending but includes the inspiration that enabled us begin this journey and the hard-working team behind it all!"
