The world around us is constantly changing and is certainly different from 10 years ago. So is the role of the controller. What can you expect from your controller in this changing world and what does the controller need in order to be successful in the new world?
Traditionally, controllers had a focus on financial accounting and reporting. Financial crisis and uncertain times with more focus on the numbers, technology, cloud computing, mass data, …. It all has an impact on the financial controllers and today, controllers have become sparring partners, IT specialists, data crunchers and analysts, all in one. Prof Filip Roodhooft will show how the world of the controller has changed over the past 10 years.
As controllers are confronted with the increasing complexity and dynamism of the business and financial environment, qualified people in the field of controllership are in high demand. Serge Vigoureux will explain how TriFinance responds to these changing needs and how they prepare their people for controller assignments?
Finally Ann Desender (Barco) and Guy Van den Dorpe (UCB) will demonstrate how the role of the controller has changed in their companies.
