CFO Summit series moves to Cape Town

The first outing of the CFO Summit series at Summer Place in Sandton, Johannesburg, in February was a phenomenal success, with attendees enjoying the insights of cybersecurity expert Sean Howell and McDonald’s South Africa CFO Zafar Mahomed’s thoughts on deal-making.

Attendees rated the event highly in their feedback, with responses ranging from "Great quality food; excellent venue; relevant and exciting topics and authoritative panel" to "Content discussion on deal-making was better than expected".

CFO SA MD Graham Fehrsen was pleased with the response to the first instalment of the series:

"CFO Summit 1 was our first effort to offer our elite finance group choice in learning at one event and we were delighted with the response. We also received excellent feedback on the quality of our panelists, which reinforces the well held belief that South African finance professionals are among the best in the world."

The CFO Summit series now moves to the Radisson Blu hotel in Cape Town on 22 March, with the private sector track featuring the likes of Oceana FD Imraan Soomra and CFO of the Year 2016 Woolworths' Reeza Isaacs, along with more than 100 of the Mother City's leading financial executives, including Mediclinic, Liberty Health, APM Terminals, Tacoma Foods, University of Cape Town and GladAfrica Group representatives.
