Finding Range: how the CFO role translates beyond the finance team

Developing professional “range” is a hot topic lately, and many finance leaders are seeking out ways to augment their financial expertise with operational experience. Whether you have your sights on the CEO or COO role, or just want to develop new ways of thinking about your organization to be a better business partner, you won’t want to miss our next CFO Connect meetup & speaker.

Join us on Tuesday, Nov. 19th from 8:30-10:30am for breakfast and conversation with Patrick Foster, Chief Business Development Officer at Getaround (and former CFO of Drivy). Patrick will share his experience leading finance teams in the UK and France, and moving from the CFO role to CBDO after Getaround’s acquisition of Drivy. Some topics we’ll cover:

  • How the finance skillset translates to different functions within a fast-growing, global company
  • Skills to build, to understand other facets of the business
  • Tips for forging strong relationships across an organization
  • ...and other topics & questions from you!

Outline of the event:

  • Complimentary coffee & breakfast
  • Fireside Chat with Patrick Foster
  • Audience Q&A
  • Open networking with CFO Connect members
