CFO & Controllership Series: Objectives, Risks and Controls to Maximize Shareholder Value

Management teams, led by the CEO and CFO are charged with preserving and growing shareholder value. The Controller as the CFO right-hand person also plays a critical role, especially relative to financial reporting objectives.

Attending this session will help arm you with practical considerations to protect and grow shareholder value.
