The Dubai FP&A Board meeting

The fourth meeting of the Dubai FP&A Board will take place on Tuesday, 23rd October 2018. The Board will interactively discuss Why Driver-Based Planning Matters for Modern FP&A.

The International FP&A Board was created in London, UK, in 2013 to guide the development and promotion of the best practices in Financial Planning & Analytics (FP&A). Since then, the Board chapters were successfully established in 21 cities and 14 countries of Europe, the Middle East, Asia, Australia and North America to identify and support new global trends, skill sets and thought leadership in modern corporate financial planning and analysis. 

The FP&A Board is exclusive to senior finance practitioners in active employment (at CFO, FD and Head of Finance level) at large local and international organisations. The meetings are complimentary, vendor-agnostic and by invitation only.
