Leading CFOs to share powerful insights at Finance Indaba

Krish Kumar, Till Streichart and Ramasela Ganda to share knowledge and experience at Finance Indaba.

For exceptional industry insight and personal knowledge, head to the Executive Journey stream in Ballroom 2 at the Finance Indaba on 3 and 4 October at the Sandton Convention Centre

The CFO is the person to whom organisations turn for direction when a crisis looms. Public Sector CFO of the Year Dr Krish Kumar, CFO of eThekwini Municipality, will be speaking about turning crises like these into organisational opportunity. 

He will be in conversation with Lushen Pather, CFO at SARB, and Dumisani Dlamini, CFO at SANPARKS - who have all lived through real commercial crises and are willing to share their insights and perspectives.

Finance plays a significant role in change, strategy and sustainability. Till Streichert, CFO at Vodacom and former CFO of the Year, and other leading CFOs will share how they have made an impact, driven business forward and remained a valued commercial partner. 

And Ramasela Ganda, CFO at Barloworld Equipment and former Public Sector CFO of the Year, will discuss how she has harnessed “purpose” to help her - and the other finance execs on her panel - build effective finance teams, drive performance and deliver success. 

There is a lot more to look forward to in Ballroom 2 at the Finance Indaba 2018, so don’t miss a single session:
