Increasingly, Controllers have to master more than technical accounting skills to become strategic leaders for their companies. Today, Controllers need to be able to explain the debits and credits at a high level to the CFO while keeping one hand in the weeds, anticipate the risks their company faces in an increasingly complex, competitive, and regulatory landscape and be an expert in ever-changing technology. Yet these skills aren’t taught in school.

This will be an interactive session moderated by Chris Sluty, co-founder and CPO of FloQast.
