Event Highlights: “Elevating Financial Controllers to CFO: Strategies for Success in 2024 and Beyond.”

Sean Khan recently hosted an event for Financial Controllers in Sydney, where he was joined by colleagues Rio PorterStephen Moir and Andrew Pownall.

The breakfast session was centred around “Elevating Financial Controllers to CFO: Strategies for Success in 2024 and Beyond.”

The gathering delved into a diverse array of topics, providing valuable insights and actionable takeaways:

  • Define your role as a leader. Lead with passion and a clear purpose, align yourself with the company’s values, and adopt a mentoring and coaching approach to developing your team.
  • Putting your hand up & getting involved in key projects and opportunities for further professional development. Seeking opportunities to engage with the board.
  • The CFO isn’t expected to know it all. Thought leadership encourages collaboration and tapping into the expertise of others to help achieve outcomes conducive to success.
  • Bolstering your skills for the organisation and industry. Taking professional risks to broaden your experience.
  • Hiring employees based on what’s best for the organisation, culture, and objectives, and not just to fit the mould.
  • An effective CFO embraces change and innovation, is agile, can see the bigger picture and is decisive to realise their strategic plans.

We appreciate the valuable contributions made by all participants to these enriching discussions. We eagerly look forward to continuing these dialogues, delving further into strategies aimed at advancing Financial Controllers to CFO roles and ensuring success in the ever-evolving landscape of 2024 and beyond.
