Why attend MFM CFO Summit?
Rest assured, all of the burning issues facing CFOs and media executives who deal directly with financial management processes will be dealt with in no holds barred discussions at this innovative summit. We look for real solutions to the real problems you face every day. We know that the theories underpinning current developments in financial management processes don't necessarily pan out in the real world, particularly when examined in a global context. Which is why we invite you to attend so you can discuss your thoughts and feelings openly, and connect with like-minded people. The MFM CFO Summit is a prime opportunity for you to air your personal and business challenges with your peers. And...attendees can obtain a up to 11.5 CPE Credits over the 2-day summit.
Registration limited to most senior financial executives in media companies. MFM reserves the right to refuse registration requests that do not meet registration criteria.
