9:40 AM PANEL DISCUSSION: Harnessing Technology and Strategy, Gaining the Competitive Advantage and Becoming Disruptors

Change is upon us weather we like it, or are ready for it or not. There is only two options: resist change and attempt to ‘keep up’ using systems which are becoming increasingly outdated or utilise the best solutions the digital age has to offer and becoming leaders in your field though transformation of the finance function. In this session panellists will discuss the benefits of gaining competitive advantage through finance transformation and how to become a disruptor:

  • Disruptors: who are they and what their finance functions look like
  • Investing in changes which reduce risk and ensure ROI
  • Keeping an eye on trends and the market to stay one step ahead of the competition

1:50 PM CASE STUDY: The Art of Storytelling with Data and Digits to Engage and Influence Stakeholders

First Mortgage is embarking on its Business Intelligence journey, with the goal of ‘doing more with the data’ such as better understanding the customer and enabling their different sources of data to converge. One of the initial steps in this process is translating this data to others not working within the finance function. In this session Head of Finance Michael Rasch will demonstrate how to gain traction with your financial analysis and communications to deliver compelling financial analysis and proposals and positive business outcomes. In addition, this session will:

  • Provide strategies you can use to better engage with your stakeholders, as effective stakeholder engagement will create alignment, provide clarity and enables teams to perform well
  • Help you to create financial savvy and impactful visual aids that will help you do less, but influence more, by making your business communications clear and concise
