I am delighted to share with you my upcoming CFO events currently scheduled over the next 2 months which cover:

Webcast: The 4 Quadrants of CFO Leadership (27 September): Perfect for CFOs who want to know they've got bases of CFO leadership covered and 'what good looks like' in each quadrant.

Webcast: CFO of the Future: Beyond Business Partner (7 October): Perfect for CFOs who think they have nailed the business partnering element of their role and they're looking for some inspiration and a safe space to consider 'what's next?'.

Webcast: Decision Making by Design (11 October): Perfect for CFOs who want a boost in confidence in their decision making ability and to know the pitfalls to avoid.

Webcast: Financial translation for CFOs (25 October): Perfect for CFOs who need their team to lift so they can elevate their focus to commercial conversations and strategic insights.

Women in Finance Mentoring Lunch (29 September): Perfect for Leading Women in Finance to connect with Young Women in Finance and participate in facilitated mentoring over lunch!

The CFO Connect series provides an intimate live online setting over breakfast and flowing coffee where CFOs can relax, share their stories and learn from each other. We focus on habits and skills for high performance and executive presence so that we can create CFOs of the Influence.

It is the perfect event for you if you don't like networking events of big groups of people but would love the opportunity to connect with people who share your challenges, can share ideas and support you with their connections.

I'd love to see you there - if you haven't been to one yet, this is the one to come along to.

Are you confident in your ability and brand as a business partner?
Are you wondering what's next?

For so long "Business Partner" has been the endgame, the holy grail for CFOs and their teams. Certainly not a new concept, it's still a hard hurdle for many CFOs to reach and overcome. For those that have mastered what it takes to be a business partner, job satisfaction might be waning. Why, you might ask? Because it's the wrong goal. We need to be thinking beyond the business partner so that business partnering becomes the new BAU.

Join Alena has she shares her reflection of the CFO career journey in a way that will allow you to say 'oh, that's me'. She'll also share with you what happens beyond business partner and provide you with the opportunity to think bigger about your career and what 'leading with significance' means to you. This will prompt you to think 'wow - I want that to be me'. She'll then share with you the steps you need to take to get from where you are now to where you want to be in the future.

Do you feel like sometimes you're not making your best decisions?

Do you want to know the pitfalls to avoid?

One of the most critical skills for a CFO in the ability to make timely decisions in a context of ambiguity and uncertainty. Your CEO, your peers and your team rely on you to provide them with the clarity and confidence they need to move forward. However, with the fast paced data driven environment CFOs operate in, there are more obstacles than ever that threaten to derail the quality of your decision-making.

In this webcast, Alena will provide you with the antidotes to these obstacles and show you how to elevate the quality of your decision-making.

Does the business like engaging with you and your team?
On a scale of 1 (awful) -10 (awesome), how would you the business rate the effectiveness of your budget process?

The opportunity that you have to engage in meaningful conversation with the business is often not optimised by CFOs and their teams. As customer experience becomes increasingly a requirement for finance teams, it is critical that CFOs create a culture within their teams that seeks to maximise every engagement opportunity. In this webcast, Alena will share with you how you can elevate your positioning, lift the financial literacy and improve the cohesion across the business through your existing processes.

Are you a leading woman in Finance who has a deep desire to help the next generation of female finance leaders?
Don't you wish that when you were just starting out in your career that you had someone like you to help you navigate your career?

We are making this happen! Our inaugural Women in Finance Mentoring lunch is being held on September 29. We'll be providing young women in finance the opportunity to be mentored by a leading woman in finance in a safe space. The next generation female finance leader will not only get the benefit of the experience of those who have walked before them, but our female finance leaders of today will have the opportunity to 'pay it forward' while levelling up their mentoring skills!
