Registration has opened for CFO Day, the essential learning and networking event for top CFOs and FDs. With a world class programme of speakers, including leading CEOs and CFOs (see programme below), this event promises to challenge your thinking, change your perspective, deliver fine dining and networking with your peers. Hosted at the world class Marble restaurant with a signature menu from head chef and co-owner David Higgs, the event promises to be the best-of-the-best on the CFO's annual calendar.

"This is a great programme!"

"The response to CFO Day has been incredible  - with more than 100 of South Africa's leading finance professionals and a healthy number of CEOs already registered during the VIP-only registration period" said CFO South Africa MD Graham Fehrsen.

“For the last 7 years we have helped CFOs talk and learn together, but it became apparent that the way in which CFOs are being stretched and the challenges they are wrestling extend way beyond their traditional roles. We wanted to create a marquee event where South Africa’s finance leaders could hear the thoughts and perspectives of leaders outside of finance and their immediate organisations. Of course we’ve still got some top CFOs involved in the programme but this is a chance for finance leaders to gain insights and perspectives that are different and will help them shape their organisation’s strategic trajectory. We’ll be pushing the boundaries and there will be a lot of energy”
