The 25th London FP&A Board will take place on the 14th of November 2019 to debate the subject of "FP&A Storytelling".

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 27 cities and 16 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 levels). Please note that places for the London chapter are limited. We are inviting only 25 professionals to join the event. 

The meeting is complimentaryvendor-agnostic and by-invitation-only.
