The CFO Alliance - Greater Washington, DC board of advisors and partners invite you to join them at our next interactive breakfast roundtable discussion: The Essential CFO- Leading and Executing Growth Strategies.

Delivering company growth in the midst of economic headwinds has been a common focal point of conversations at CFO Alliance roundtables in 2013. Given the current state of capital markets, M&A may appear to be the more attractive growth channel for most companies. If only it were that easy. The obstacles in identifying and successfully integrating the right companies to achieve growth objectives can’t be overlooked despite the lure of what many companies view as cheap money.

Join us for an interactive discussion focused on how CFOs are embracing the challenges in taking on roles ranging from Chief Revenue Officer to Chief Innovation Officer to drive company growth from top to bottom. Discover and share your experiences with fellow CFOs regarding how to ensure that critical initiatives are adequately resourced, clearly aligned to deliver financial results, and that a disciplined approach exists for measuring results throughout the organization.

Participants will understand the steps needed to undertake in order to increase both value creation and value preservation. If you influence growth at all in your organization, this will be a very worthwhile session to attend. Your take away will be a "Value Creation Score Card" that you can use to identify and execute any growth plan.

Attendance is restricted to Senior Finance Leaders only. All attendees will receive 2 CPE credits.

Learning objectives:
1. Evaluate how a lack of Diversification can lower your enterprise value
2. Understand the options available to your company to fund growth activities in today's markets
3. Create a Roadmap using a Value Creation Score Card
4. Receive and update on Middle Market M&A
