The 2011 CFO Summit explored the approaches and strategies that cement the CFO’s place at the helm of the company as they steered their businesses and teams forward during testing times. World-renowned experts on forecasting, leadership, investment, risk, capital management and M&A provided inspirational guidance on how CFOs should respond to the unique set of challenges presented by a world recovering from recession.

Chaired by The Economist's Finance Editor, this peer-to-peer gathering offered a unique opportunity to gain invaluable insight into the future of finance and allowed over 150 attendees the chance to add their views to the discussions.
