Change Makers presents


Virtual, Private Panel Discussion

Wednesday 15th March

11:00 – 12:00 GMT

“Sustainable growth is about building a business that can thrive for the long-term, not just for the next quarter.”


– CEO, Unilever

Fast-growth, funded businesses are running a tightrope. Investment rounds that had a 3-year time horizon are now being extended out, and the “Growth at all costs” mentality has been left in 2022. With 83% of executives currently focusing on longer-term, sustainable growth [PwC, 2023], the winning strategy has changed. And what looked like a sprint, is now a marathon.


To keep up, organisations need to get fit. Fast. And with 89% of C-suite executives agreeing that finance should actively take on the role as the organisation’s strategic backbone [BCG, 2023], the function must aggressively eliminate inefficiencies, automate the mundane and cut away tasks that distract from strategic planning. It’s time to cut the fat or your organisation won’t meet its next milestone.


The finance function of tomorrow will take centre stage and not only guide their organisation through this downturn but set it up for long-term growth. How will you ensure your organisation is future fit?
