It is a great pleasure giving a keynote at the WIWO Digital Suite 2020 and to discuss the topic „Back to the roots. How technological progress and artificial intelligence is influencing international affairs and business today.“ with Germany‘s leading CFO‘s.
ABOUT THE KEYNOTE
The length of stay of market-leading companies in the DAX, NASDAQ and other leading indices is decreasing rapidly. The planning cycles in companies and for CFOs are becoming shorter and shorter and the planning uncertainty with regard to the effects of international tensions on exports is increasing. The keynote will provide information on the relationship between the phenomenon of exponential technology leaps and the resulting innovations in the field of artificial intelligence and its impact on the geopolitical situation and international cooperation in general, and customer behavior and communication in particular.
A successful digitization strategy can only be implemented with and by the CFO. CFOs are drivers of change in the company and at the same time have to change themselves and the finance function.
This is a balancing act in which the prioritization of digitization projects in particular becomes a challenge in day-to-day business and again increasing cost pressure.
With the CFO Digital Suite, WirtschaftsWoche offers a creative space for your own assessment and inspiration.
