The turbulent ever-changing and technology-driven world of business requires changing and evolving roles for controllers. The focus is currently more on the soft side of the business, rather than accounting and reporting. It is more about people-pleasing than pencil-pushing. Studies have shown the controllers who want to rise in the ranks of CFO must learn to put down their pencils and master the soft skills. Controllers must become Strategic Partners, Value-Adding Decision Makers, Providers of Solutions, and Managers of Change. It is more a matter of running the company with the numbers, rather than by the numbers. This webinar looks at the changing role of controllers in the current turbulent business world. It bends the arch away from the recording and reporting of the past and looks to the future and the creating of relationships and effective leadership.

The major focus will be on the qualities of an effective controller:
