CFO SA tackles public sector challenges

Public finance professionals are tasked with nation-building and ensuring economic progress and face a different set of challenges to their private sector counterparts.

With this in mind and after a successful launch of a public sector community in 2016, CFO South Africa is hosting a series of "city to city" discussions with public finance leaders covering the key challenges of empowerment and accountability, leading through change and improving the Public:Private discourse in 2017.

The first of these events will take place at the Menlyn Boutique Hotel in Pretoria on 15 February and explore what it takes to deliver exceptional value to the public and develop environments of trust and excellence.

Do you want to be at the leading edge of finance? You can't afford to miss out on the opportunity to hear from public sector leaders and experts if you want success, inspiration and profitability in 2017! The first city-to-city public finance event of the year is to be held on 15 February in Pretoria. Register here.

CFO South Africa MD Graham Fehrsen is excited aboutthe prospect of developing the Public Finance community over the coming year:

"After a very successful first year of our Public Finance community (we hosted eight events with leading figures from the public sector) we will embark on a city to city tour of South Africa in an effort to make it easier and more convenient for Public Finance leaders to learn and network together. Our focus in 2016 was "Leadership" and in 2017 we will focus on "Empowerment and Accountability". Together with our partners, we will be looking to help Public Finance leaders move the public:private discourse forward for the good of all South Africans and help develop a wider network for knowledge sharing among Public Finance leaders."
