FDs are far more than number crunchers. They oversee operational areas. They help shape strategy. They optimise financial performance. But it can be a lonely role with little expert advice or peer input. The FD Surgery is designed as a remedy for this.
This highly interactive event, which takes place in partnership with Real Business in both London and Manchester, brings together experts from areas such as currency hedging and tax optimisation. We also hear from finance directors themselves, including the FDs of companies such as Boden, Just Eat and Photobox.
The FDs’ Excellence Awards
These established and valued awards, which are a key part of the FD Surgery and take place over a three-course lunch, recognise exceptional finance directors and their service providers.
HR for FDs
The FD Surgery also hosts a separate half-day HR for Finance Directors event. Featuring an on-stage debate, technical presentations and roundtable discussions, the event gives finance directors the opportunity to share and learn about HR-related challenges.
“A useful day away from the office providing valuable insight into many topics affecting either me or my business both today and tomorrow.”
