Oliver will explain the challenges many FP&A departments face today when trying to answer the business questions ‘where do we want to be in the future?’ and ‘how will we get there?’ He will outline how other organisations have built the ideal office of finance, what that looks like, and how you can achieve this too. Sharing customer stories and experiences, he will show you how you can move beyond Excel and implement an FP&A function that will enable you to collaborate quickly and easily with other departments, provide scenario planning to map out possible futures and give you back valuable time.
