About the CFO Summit

The 2017 New Zealand CFO Summit was an enormous success with over 300 attendees attending in March. Conferenz and Stuff are grateful for the continued support from EY in creating this event.

Designed with the CFO and senior finance executive in mind, the New Zealand CFO Summit is the key opportunity for finance leaders across all industry sectors to examine issues and share insights and best practice. Our 2017 Summit was attended by 300 finance industry leaders who enjoyed a day of insightful, high-level presentations from international keynotes and some of New Zealand’s most well-respected business leaders. The event was then capped off by a sell-out CFO Awards dinner for over 380 people, making it New Zealand’s premier CFO event.

We both look forward to welcoming you at the 2018 CFO Summit.
