The inaugural CFO Innovation Indonesia Forum was a tremendous success, enjoying a conference room packed with CFOs and senior finance executives from throughout Indonesia.

The strong turnout and enthusiasm of participants reflected the Indonesia’s huge growth potential and demand for new ideas and business solutions.

In Indonesia as in the other of the CFO Innovation Forum Series, a hot topic of discussion was recruitment and retention of finance talent. Demand for talent is intense in Asia in general, because economies continue to grow – yet at the same time, supply of finance talent is limited.

Another common theme at the conference – and for CFOs throughout Asia: the expansion of finance’s remit to include analytics and business partnering, regardless of whether the organisation is a local company or an MNC.

The CFO Innovation Forum series will continue the discussion of these and other topics at its next stop in Singapore on 24-25 June.

Conference background

The CFO Innovation Indonesia Forum focuses on the opportunities and risks that CFOs are likely to face given the current market situation in Indonesia.

Dubbed by Boston Consulting Group as ‘Asia’s next big opportunity’, Indonesia had hit a record in the number of direct foreign investments between January and March 2013.

This closed-door forum provides CFOs, financial controllers, treasurers and other finance executives the opportunity to spend one day immersed in a productive environment with peers from large enterprises and multinationals, as well as business specialists and other experts.

The annual CFO Innovation Forum series makes stops in multiple locations across Asia in 2014.
