For finance leaders, reducing the time their team dedicates to mind-numbing transactional work is no longer an aspirational action item. Growing numbers of CFOs are already marching in step with the robots as they evaluate and automate the processes that will allow their team to refocus on becoming exceptional analysts and strategic advisors, rather than yesterday’s bean counters.
This webinar will explore how to:
- Position RPA (Robotic Process Automation) as the cornerstone of next-gen finance.
- Incorporate accounting and planning and compliance processes into a winning RPA strategy.
- Develop the analytical, communication, and relationship skills your team will require to complete an RPA transformation.
Join us when Steve Love, CFO, Dialpad, and performance thought leader Brett Knowles reveal how RPA is reshaping corporate functions while making finance’s analytical rigor more accessible across the organization. Plus, Michael Shultz, director of finance transformation, BlackLine, outlines the capabilities that can enable any accountant to deliver predictive insights to leadership, drive data-based decisions, and provide expert counsel.
Steven Love is the Chief Financial Officer (CFO) at Dialpad. Previously, he served as the CFO at Mblox and also held senior leadership roles at Evolv, Affymax, Connetics, Informatica, Portal Software, and Ernst & Young.
