More than ever before, the role of Finance Directors and CFOs extends beyond financial responsibilities into ever more varied aspects of the business. And this is especially true of those working in the UK’s SMEs.

- A focus on the increasingly varied aspects of the FD role and CFO role
- Varied format including panel discussions, case studies, round tables and Q&A
