Keynote: Transform or Die — Why Digital Transformation is No Longer Optional

Daniel Burrus, Leading Futurist, Strategic Advisor, Best-Selling Author

Technology-driven, exponential change has created a unique tipping point, one filled with disruptive problems as well as amazing new opportunities for treasury and finance. We are no longer in a period of rapid change, we have now entered a new era of digital transformation. If you are only changing a process, product or service, you are falling behind every year. Many think they are transforming a process when they are really only changing it, because they don’t know the difference. Knowing the difference is key to true innovation and success. In this eye-opening presentation, discover how new tools, strategies and thinking can be used to transform mission-critical processes for cash and risk management, payments and working capital optimization.

9:35AM - 10:15AM
The Case for Treasury Led Finance Transformation*

Transforming Business Through Treasury & Finance Digitization

Jim Kaitz, President & CEO, AFP

Kevin Permenter, Senior Research Analyst, Enterprise Applications, IDC
Jim O’Connor, Global Finance & GBS Advisory Practice Leader, The Hackett Group
Rue Jenkins, Former Treasurer, Costco Wholesale Corporation

For many CFOs, finance transformation isn’t a matter of if, but when. Modernizing the finance function via digital process innovation and insight is universally acknowledged as the key to navigating complex global markets, new business models, and creating better overall value and performance. However, many CFOs tend to initiate their transformation projects in a financial planning and analysis, overlooking a lower-risk, higher reward alternative: treasury. Join this interactive panel discussion with AFP, IDC, the Hackett Group and Rue Jenkins, former Treasurer at Costco Wholesale Corporation to learn how digital treasury transformation can deliver direct and immediate value across the organization, from protecting against fraud and financial risk, to reducing costs, to accelerating growth and value. Hear from industry experts on why CFOs are leaning on the treasury function more and more to embrace a new role, that of Chief Growth Officer, so they can better serve the board and CEO.
