2024 CFO Day - Boardroom Superpowers: The art of executive storytelling


Exclusive for: Finance executives

Location: Johannesburg

Date & Time: 14 May 2024 11:00

CFO Day, the biggest gathering of CFOs in the year, returns on 14 May to the Leonardo, to deliver an exceptional knowledge-sharing, career-building and networking experience. This year’s theme is “Boardroom Superpowers: The art of executive storytelling”, and will examine how finance executives can bring the numbers to life – inside and outside of the boardroom.

You’ll hear from leading CFOs Arno Daehnke (Standard Bank), Tinyiko Sihlangu (Royal Bafokeng Holdings), Paul Stedall (King Price Insurance) and Ashona Kooblall (iOCO). You will also be challenged and engaged by Claudelle von Eck, founder of Brave Inflexions, who will speak about the importance of supporting whistleblowers, Gail Schimmel, CEO of the Advertising Regulatory Board, who will stress the importance of truth in advertising, and a host of other experts in messaging and communication.

And of course, you will be treated to a delectable lunch from the Leonardo’s Aurum restaurant, and this year, we’ll be enjoying sundowners at an all-new lookout space – Level 45!
