Virtual Event: Re-Imagining Public Sector Finance

Improving Efficiency and Leveraging Your Finance Function for Strategic Insights

Tuesday, October 27, 2020 (Start: 12.00pm ET / 9.00am PT)

Agenda Overview:

The role of the CFO and finance function is evolving.

With a bird’s eye view of the entire Agency, finance sits in a very strategic place at the heart of decision making, enabling the function to advise the most lucrative avenues for ROI, smart investment decisions in improving operations and service, along with any additional areas for growth and adding value.

Reducing cost and waste and improving efficiency and agility remain at the forefront of finance transformation, but now the focus is equally on leveraging the function as a strategic advisory unit for the rest of the business.

With this in mind, Public Sector Network’s
Re-Imagining Finance in the Public Sector Virtual Event will delve into the most successful cases of where Canadian Government departments and agencies have been successful in driving forward this agenda.
