With the role of the chief financial officer (CFO) becoming increasingly complex and demanding, the Institute of Chartered Accountants of Sri Lanka (CA Sri Lanka) will take the lead yet again in helping Sri Lankan CFOs adopt to local and global changes, thereby helping them take on new challenges and deliver sophisticated levels of service as true partners of businesses.
CA Sri Lanka, together with internationally recognized Euromoney Training, will conduct a three-day programme exclusively for chief executive officers in Sri Lanka in June this year on strategic financial leadership, which will focus on modern day challenges, the way in which finance leadership is evolving and the future role of the CFO.
The programme will highlight valuable insights into practices that are being adopted by CFOs globally and will provide a useful forum for networking and sharing experiences. The programme will cover emerging challenges in the areas of regulation, globalisation, risk, transformation, stakeholder management, reporting, talent and capability, ethics, bribery, corruption and fraud.
The exclusive CFO workshop will be conducted by Raj Ghandi, who commands over 25 years’ experience in the financial services, energy and retail sector and has built up expertise in finance, treasury, internal audit, risk and governance. He is the former CFO of London Capital Group Holdings PLC. Among his other prominent roles was Business Analyst in Group Reporting/Global Audit Manager (Treasury) for Royal Dutch Shell PLC and Group Treasurer of Empire Stores Group PLC.
Since becoming a trainer and independent consultant in 2009, Gandhi is a tutor for the Institute of Directors UK and has developed reputation for delivering highly pragmatic learning with a practitioner perspective. He is a founder and director of his own consultancy with clients based globally.
