The many hats of the FD

Today Chartered Accountants’ Hall is hosting the ICAEW Finance Directors’ Conference.


It’s themed around the many hats an FD has to wear, because of more open business cultures, a faster pace of change and new technologies. In other words, FDs today need many skills and broad knowledge to help their companies thrive and grow.


Speakers at the conference such as Jim Buckle of LoveFilm and Andrew Lewis of Avon Rubber are prime examples of talent now needed in order to drive growth and business turnarounds.


Jim and Andrew are just two of the many finance professionals that are both wearing many hats and wearing them well.


The conference hashtag is #fdhats
