CFO of the future: the 12 key ways to elevate your voice, value and vision
Get the book!

This breakfast will be extra special as you will be one of the first CFOs in our community who will get their hands on a copy of my latest book, "CFO of the Future".

The CFO Connect series provides an intimate 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 you have all your ducks in a row to execute a successful FY2022?

Join me for a free webcast where I will share with you the 5 Pillars of High Performance for CFOs to help you successfully lead in FY2022.

These pillars will provide an holistic and simple framework through which you can monitor and assess your progress through the year and ensure that no balls are dropped even when it comes to the crunch.

Are you wondering how you can extract next-level performance from your team?
Do you have a gut feel that there's something just not quite right, but can't hit your nail on it?

Come and join me where I'll share with you a very simple framework and template that will help you get your team back on track. I'll also ask you the one key question that will instantly lift your thinking.

Are you the glue in your organisation?
Are you wondering why people always come to you with their problems?

Integrity is one of the key qualities that CFOs possess that executives and Boards are relying on more than ever. They are looking for the CFO to be the voice of reason next to the CEO's voice of vision and this means they often perceive you as 'the safe sounding board'.

Learn how leverage this superpower so that you effectively play the role of mediator and facilitator amongst the exec team (without it turning into a full time job!) and get the right result.

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

For at least the past decade, business partnering has been seen as the holy grail for a CFO and their finance team. While not every CFO has it nailed, many do and this has meant that there's quite a large disparity in terms of what it means to be a CFO. This can make it hard to figure out what's next when you're at the top?

Come and join me for an interactive masterclass where you will be joined by others in the same position. We'll discuss what's on the horizon for CFOs and the options available to you as you consider 'what's next?'.

Are you wondering where your gaps are?
Are you wondering where the specific areas of growth lie in the spectrum of CFO capabilities?

Of the 4 domains of a CFO, there is a unique sequence of success for each of you. The key is knowing what this is.

Come and join Alena for an interactive masterclass where she will take you through her CFO of Influence Index diagnostic tool. This will provide you with a deep dive into where you're at and identify what specific next steps you need to take to have the impact you're after.

You'll walk away with an in-depth understanding of where you're at and how to get to where you want to be. Be great to see you there!

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 August 10. 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!

Our first lunch is fully booked, but if you'd like to get on the waitlist, please click here.

The Leading Women in Finance Network: Connection Beyond the Numbers is an intimate network of leading women in finance who want connection and growth...without the canapes and small talk. There is still so much demand for sponsorship and support for women in finance as they continued to be outnumbered in the boardroom. This is that opportunity. Each quarter we hold a dinner event for Network members and their guests.

If this sounds like something you need in your life, join here. Alternatively, come and experience its impact at our next dinner event on September 22.
