The Ultimate Meeting Point

Those that have attended our conferences before know that besides an exceptional speaker panel we always stress the importance of networking. We strongly believe that actively engaging with others is key in finding new ideas and making connections to advance in your professional life.

Therefore, on the first day you can enjoy 4 networking slots, followed by an exclusive evening networking program. Day 2 offers plenty of networking opportunities as well, as 4 more slots are scheduled in between the event sessions.

Besides your own peers, you will also have the unique opportunity to network with representatives of 10 Innovative Startup companies that will take the stage during the Quick Pitch Competition.

3 CFOs of the Year

The impressive speaker panel is fortified by the presence of 3 CFOs of the year. Robert Verbich – CFO for the Regions of Czech Republic, Slovakia, Hungary & Head of Global Shared Services for EMEA at Osram – holds the prestigious title of CFO of the Year in Slovakia. His presentation is entitled: CFO as Strategic Decision Maker.

Our second award-winning CFO, Marek Gruszecki – Vice President of Finance at Quad/Graphics Europe – was awarded CFO of the Year in Poland. He will present a case study on moving towards smarter budgeting, planning and forecasting.

Last but not least, we have invited Daniel Burys, CFO at Kofola. Daniel was CFO of the Year in Czech Republic. His session at the conference is an inspiring story about a small local company finding funds at a small local stock exchange.

Innovative Mornings and Practical Afternoons

The program is built upon the format of innovative mornings and practical afternoons. What does this entail exactly? Besides several high quality presentations, case studies and interactive discussions, we have worked hard to deliver a multitude of practical workshops to have attendees truly emerge in the topics.
