Wednesday webinar at one: Leadership for finance professionals go beyond numbers

Wednesday 17 May 2023 | 13:00 - 13:40 | Webinar

Organisations are complex webs of stories. As a finance professional in a leadership position, you may be tempted to cut through the confusing interlacing of emotions, personal agendas and politics and instead rely first and foremost on hard numbers to make your decisions.

This 40-minute webinar by leadership scholar Dr. Emilia Bunea, CFA and a former CFO in large organisations will:

  • Discuss why and how exercising leadership and influence is needed together with, and sometimes before, flexing your financial analysis muscle
  • Draw on excerpts from “Crossroads Life”, a film based on the real-life case of a newly promoted CFO in a major financial corporation.


Registration: 12:55
Event: 13:00 - 13:40
