Preparing for recovery and “the new normal” starts now.

The priority of CFOs and finance leaders over the past weeks has been focused almost exclusively on how to respond to COVID-19. However, leaders have the substantial and added responsibility to nimbly consider all three timeframes (respond, recover, and thrive) concurrently and allocate resources accordingly to ensure they set the foundation to thrive and achieve sustained growth and performance after the pandemic is over.

Join us on April 7 for a live webcast for large organization CFOs where we’ll discuss:

  • Economic indicators & the road towards recovery  
  • A CFO perspective: Navigating through COVID-19
  • Financial reporting & accounting update for Q1
  • Q&A 

Joining our Deloitte panel for this webcast will be Maxime Therrien, Chief Financial Officer & Secretary, Saputo Inc.
