Throughout the Covid-19 pandemic, ICMA Australia has continued its commitment to bring world-class seminars to its members.
On October 7, 2021, CMA ANZ was proud to present one of our members Alena Bennett, CMA, at a webinar titled: “CFO of the Future: Beyond Business Partner.”
She said that “Business Partner” which has been the endgame, the holy grail for CFOs and their teams, whilst not a new concept, is 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, she said. “We need to be thinking beyond the business partner so that business partnering becomes the new BAU.”
Alena then shared her reflection of the CFO career journey in a way that will allow one to say ‘oh, that’s me’. She’ll also shared what happens beyond business partner and provided participants with the opportunity to think bigger about their career and what ‘leading with significance’ means to each [person.
Alena is also a Chartered Accountant with international public practice and corporate experience and a trained educator and published author, Alena is the go-to for Chief Financial Officers and their teams looking for next-level success.
