The second edition of Ghana CFO Awards will take place at Movenpick Ambassador Hotel in Accra on October 21, 2016, InstinctWave Limited, organiser of the programme, has announced.
A statement signed by Mr. Akin Naphtal, CEO of InstinctWave, said this year’s award will precede a CFO lecture for all finance executives in the country to discuss major issues, challenges and the way forward for finance professionals to explore their fields for growth.
“Our goal for this year’s CFO lecture and awards is to showcase the functions and role played by finance executives while honouring and acknowledging finance executives/CFOs and their teams including the organisations that provided them with relevant resources for their success and growth,” he said.
The lecture is a key opportunity for finance leaders across all industry sectors to examine issues, share insights and best practices.
This year’s lecture will bring together innovative leaders in the country to talk about top issues in the profession, the role to driving innovation, business model optimization, strategic leadership, and proactive stakeholder engagement.
According to research, value creation rather than scorekeeping is the mission of today’s corporate financial leaders; this does not just require CFOs (chief finance officers) to help executives, boards and business unit managers make effective decisions, it requires them to challenge decisions and in the end endorse them as well.
The statement said this year’s award category has been extended to all industry sectors in the country with the aim of recognising and honouring the accomplishment of finance executives doing exceptionally well and contributing to the growth of their organisation and nation at large.
The awards celebrate Ghana’s top chief financial officers and senior finance executives at networking dinner, the statement added.
The Ghana CFO Awards is an annual event recognising and celebrating the accomplishments of financial executives and organisation for their financial leadership and contributions to their companies’ growth.
The first of its kind, the annual awards, will showcase and acknowledge not only chief financial officers and their teams, but also the firms that provide them with the services, support, and technologies that enabled their individual success.
