CFO Roles are Forever Changed: Former Oracle CFO Tells You What You Need to Know
Feb. 11, 2021 • Webinar 2pm ET
COVID-19 unceremoniously thrust massive, unexpected change management and agile operations responsibilities onto CFOs when fast-moving supply chain shifts and critical inventory shortages put the viability of their businesses in jeopardy. Finance leaders who were already busy navigating the financial ramifications of the pandemic—as well as constantly evolving tariff restrictions and financial regulations—now had new duties that made for an overwhelming situation for many CFOs. Yet other CFOs embraced—and even welcomed—these new responsibilities. And they uniformly share one key trait: they're all insight-driven.
Bessemer Ventures Operating Partner Jeff Epstein knows how important operational insights are to growing a business. These insights are what helped him as a CFO successfully lead financial operations for Oracle, one of the largest and most profitable technology companies in the world.
By attending this webinar, you will understand exactly how the CFO role has changed, exactly what's required to achieve insight-driven decision making, and how you as a CFO can quickly evolve your finance function to get there. You will learn:
