The BLN CFO Breakfast Brainstorm – ‘Sales Directors are from Mars, CFOs are from Venus’ – making sense of sales forecasting

The BLN CFO Breakfast Brainstorm (12th January, 8.00-10.30), is a high-level peer-to-peer discussion forum for individuals leading the finance function in some of the UK’s most admired companies.

Approximately 20 attendees, comprising successful CFOs and rising stars will attend under the Chatham House Rule. The programme exists to help CFOs network, learn from each other, share best practice and advance the role of the CFO in high growth companies in a relaxed, entertaining and facilitated environment.

Attendees: The BLN CFO Breakfast Brainstorms have already included some of the most experienced public and private company CFOs and FDs in the region including CFO/FD’s from Red Gate Software, NXT plc, nCipher, Xaar, Domino, Owlstone, Zeus, Sphere Medical, PriSmaStar, Atlantic Healthcare and 1spatial amongst others.

Theme: ‘Sales Directors are from Mars, CFOs are from Venus’ – making sense of sales forecasting. As well as providing a welcome opportunity for CFOs to meet and share issues informally, this event will focus on the challenges of short term sales forecasting.  Previous attendees have identified this subject as one of key interest, both from the perspective of running their current business more effectively, but also from a personal professional development perspective.

The BLN CFO Breakfast Brainstorms have been greeted by CFOs as a welcome and much needed initiative to facilitate the development of the strategic finance function in organisations – as well as offering a nice breakfast and a chance to meet fellow finance professionals.

Supporters: This initiative is supported by BDO and breakfast is provided courtesy of Red Gate Software.
