The 2nd Annual Women in Finance and Accounting Leadership Summit 2015 The Amora Hotel Jamison Sydney - 17 & 18 February 2015. EXPLORE - Inspirational leadership journeys from successful finance executives - Transitioning from technical specialist to authentic team leader, overcoming common career challenges and obstacles - Strategies to maintain positive work / life balance in a high-pressure, time poor role - Identifying support structures, networks and career mentors. ABOUT THE EVENT For finance and accounting professionals the move from specialist to strategist, from ledger to leader, is far from straight-forward. Technical expertise provides a solid career footing, but leadership demands a dynamic and finely-tuned set of skills shaping a first-rate communicator, influencer and strategic business partner. Recent years have seen a greater evolution of the traditional control responsibilities of finance functions, with leaders operating in and as agents of organisational change, improving business efficiencies, agility and culture. These new frontiers of finance leadership bring great possibility and even greater challenges, and for women in finance and accounting there are still more challenges to overcome. Despite a much healthier representation in less senior finance roles, the gender gap remains markedly more pronounced in the C-suite with a recent study reporting less than 10% of CFOs for ASX-listed companies are women. The 2nd Annual Women in Finance and Accounting Leadership Summit 2015 is the premier professional development opportunity for existing and emerging leaders. This unique forum will address core technical and leadership skills, and share inspirational career stories and insights from successful finance and accounting executives and women in senior leadership roles from across all industries.
