CFO Congress opens the door for current topics that move the financial world

The fourth year of CFO Congress will take place on September 10, 2015 at the Clarion Congress Hotel Prague.

The new concept will offer for the first time parallel specialized topics, more space for networking and moderator star.

"We are happy that the awareness of this annual congress is constantly growing, five weeks before the event there are already 100 participants registered, so we just hope that we will be able to accommodate all those interested in participating," says one of the organizers, Antonín Parma from Blue Events.

The first of three sections of the Congress is dedicated to the financial agenda. The opening presentation of David Marek (Deloitte) will introduce not only the current economic outlook for 2015 and beyond, but it will also focus on development forecasts of the course of crown vs. EUR and US, practical insights on "What CFO should take into account while drafting a plan for 2016 and beyond" and many other interesting topics from the field of financial management. Other speakers will be Karel Soukeník (Sberbank) and Lubor Žalman (EnCor Capital Management), who will discuss possibilities of traditional and alternative sources of finance for the company, and Pavel Jirák, former director of the Penzijní společnost Komerční banky, who will focus on the current state of the labor market in the area of CFO or work with CFO teams.

The second part of the congress will offer two panel discussions focusing on modern trends in the financial world. The first is about Big Data. Moderator Filip Doušek (Mibcon), like the other panelists will be sharing his experience through case studies and specific questions from the ranks of the auditorium. The second section is intended for those who want to discover new trends in controlling and strategies of the financial department. The discussion will be led by Ondřej Jež together with glossarist Lenka Neuvirtová (both Deloitte).

The final part will be devoted to the discussion on specific issues that "burn" the financial directors. Daniel Stach (Czech Television) will moderate it and the panel will be composed of Jaroslav Barták (Walmark ČR & SR), Tomáš Kouřil (O2), Vit Vážan (České radiokomunikace), Marian Rašík (PEGAS NONWOVENS), Martin Rozehnal (Marks and Spencer Czech Republic ) and Václav Řehoř (Český Aeroholding). Experts from renowned companies will discuss from different angles the role of the finance department, CFO's destiny ("cop" versus partner), competence and requirements of CFOs and many other questions.

The Congress will offer an interesting space for active networking and during the various panels all participants will also be involved in informal discussions with the performers. The main partner of the 4th annual CFO Congress is Deloitte, the major partners include also eg. Company O2, Sberbank and others.
