SYDNEY – Growth Series – Lunch with the CFO
Tuesday, 3rd December @ 12:30 pm - 2:00 pmFree – $110.00
Please join us for our next Growth Series event where we will meet FEI mentor, Melanie Kirk, Head of Investor Relations for the Commonwealth Bank. Mel’s career spans professional services, and trading desk finance in New York before she started with CBA in 2005. She has undertaken a series of increasingly senior finance strategy and client and stakeholder relations roles at CBA and has been the Head of IR since 2015. We are thrilled to have her join us to share insights on her non-traditional finance career, as well as her investor relations expertise liaising with the shareholders of Australia’s largest company.
The increasing importance of stakeholder management to the CFO role cannot be underestimated. EY’s DNA of the CFO study outlines the CFO’s need for “prioritizing the most important stakeholder relationships, communicating proactively and telling a consistent value story.” This is an excellent opportunity to hear how Mel has approached that responsibility, how she balances its demands with her other life priorities, and the impact of the interesting and unique portfolio of experiences and skills that she has accumulated in her career to date.
You should attend if:
- You are a 2019/20 FEI mentee
- You are looking for unique/different ways that your finance skills can be applied
- You are interested in honing your existing stakeholder and investor management skills
- You wish to future proof your skill set
This is a FEI Member Only event. It is complimentary for mentees in our 2019/20 Mentoring Program and open to all FEI members.
With their learning orientation, FEI events typically meet the requirements for CPD for professional bodies. We can provide members with a report of FEI learning activity from 1 April this year. This event would be regarded as 1 hour of CPD.
