“What will the board expect from me as a CFO?”
BDO USA, LLP invites you and your fellow FutureCFOs to the next discussion in our series exploring the skills and strategies that are critical to making the transition to CFO.
In our first session, we heard from a panel of CFOs on how they made the journey into the hot-seat. In this second session, we will look through a different lens, with a panel of public and private board members sharing their expectations and experiences working with CFOs.
