From Balancing the Budget to Driving the Corporate Growth Agenda

The Modern CFO’s Dinner

29 June | The Charlotte Street Hotel | 6:30pm

About the Dinner

The Hidden Edge Club brings together the city’s most innovative and forward thinking leaders from some of the worlds largest and most important companies. We meet quarterly in some of London’s most exclusive venues to discuss timely market challenges faced by our members, explore strategy options and compare best practice.


On June 29th we are meeting to discuss and debate the shift of the enterprise CFO from balancing books to driving growth strategy. If you are a senior finance executive of a large-scale company we’d be delighted to welcome you.

Why Attend?

  • Topics are chosen based on the interests of our existing members, industry-wide disruptions and fascinating topics broached at prior events.
  • Attendance is strictly by invitation only, and aimed toward senior leaders, and other top-executives, including industry-wide thought leaders.
  • Our guests gain exclusive insights on trending business topics through networking and round table dinner discussions with guests of similar seniority.

The Discussion

From Brexit to Blockchain to the digital agenda, the modern CFO is in the driving seat.

Over 57% of CFO’s now have 2 or more non-finance direct reports, and that 83% of CFO’s are increasingly turning to analytics to provide greater clarity and leadership within their roles. (EY survey, 2017)

A recent survey revealed that over 90% of finance leaders said they need to do more with their data to support critical management decisions. Indeed, it’s such a priority that over 70% of these executives also said it is their number-one goal for 2017.

So what is expected of the modern CFO from the wider organisation and how can you make faster, more informed decisions? The increase in the expectations from the finance function have never been more challenging or exciting. Join us in London on the 29th of June for a Michelin-starred dinner and debate exclusively for finance leaders of large-scale organisations.

On the discussion agenda:


  • Why is 2017 a crucial year for CFO’s to get their digital agenda right?
  • What are leading CFO’s doing to take advantage of this as an opportunity to drive organisational growth?
  • How have finance leaders transformed their functions to enable their expanded role and responsibility?
