Webinar to reveal why finance executives must evolve and adapt along with their people


Investec Specialist Bank CFO Marlé van der Walt will share her three-point plan to staying relevant.

On 5 November, CFO South Africa will be hosting a webinar, in partnership with Oracle, in which Investec Specialist Bank CFO Marlé van der Walt and Oracle business solution lead Audrey Mbuyazi will explain what it takes to be an agile leader.

When the Covid-19 lockdown hit, Marlé was faced with a number of mammoth financial challenges. As it was financial year end, she and her team had to reperform year-end valuations and impairments, as well as rebudget and reforecast for the next three years – all over a two-week period. She also had to account for a deficit of R1.2 billion arising from the disruption of Covid-19. And she had to respond to the business-wide demands of lockdown.

“It takes a combination of cutting-edge, responsive technology, and agile finance leadership to survive ‘black swan’ events,” she says.

In this webinar, Marlé will reveal her three-point plan for ensuring that you and your business never gets stuck in the past, and will highlight why it’s important for finance executives to make sure that they continue to evolve and adapt along with their people.

Audrey will also share her views on evolving to remain relevant in a fast-paced and often surprising work environment.
