The CFO Mandate: Mitigate Risks That Stall Growth - CENTER CITY PHILADELPHIA


One of the top pillars of a CFO's responsibilities is Risk Management. From overall financial management to the oversight of HR and IT, a fractional or full-time CFO is the first line of defense in establishing and maintaining adequate risk management and mitigation for today's emerging and middle market enterprises.

As we sprint through 2019 and look ahead to 2020, it is clear that risk comes in many forms - from lack of internal controls, to cybersecurity, to employee risks. The CFO is charged with understanding and mitigating the risks that their enterprises face. Please join me and a group of your finance peers as we share best practices and develop practical takeaways on the top areas of risk that you are focusing on, including:

- Recession-Proofing the Business: How to plan for the worst, while hoping for the best
- Managing Employee Risks: How much to invest in employees that stay on average 18 months
- Dealing with Margin Compression: How to diversify revenues to mitigate margin compression

  1. How to build a tight link between risk management and business performance processes, including how best to identify, prioritize, and determine the people, the skills, the processes, the resources, and the technology required to mitigate these risks
  2. How to lead a C-suite and board discussion of enterprise risk preferences, focusing on which choices will most likely deliver economic profit for the enterprise
  3. How to use risk analytics to inform strategic and investment decisions
