Most CFOs are perceived by their boards as critical, strategic business partners. Nonetheless, many finance chiefs fail to deliver the exact insights and advice that CEOs and corporate board members need to make critical decisions. A recent study by CFO Research, sponsored by Kyriba, identified six key areas where CFOs need to communicate more effectively, and act more decisively, in helping boards drive growth and protect shareholder value.

​Listen to the recording of this session, delivered by Bob Stark, Kyriba’s vice present of strategy, John Granato, CFO,  The Andersons, Inc., Roxi Wen, CFO, Elo Touch, and’s research director Chris Schmidt, who discuss:

  • How CFOs can deliver clear value in these six key areas for 2018
