Navigating an uncertain future in the post Covid world. Reflections on the past 18 months and how it will change the way a MME CFO operates going forward.
About this event
Today, MMEs must wrestle with expanding compliance and reporting requirements, stay on top of constant innovation in supporting technologies and deal with external economic shocks, such as the global pandemic – all whilst managing costs and ensuring they have the financial foundation for future success.

Listen in to this discussion to discover:
How CFOs and their MMEs weathered to Covid storm.
What specific challenges MMEs around the UK face and how to overcome them to ensure business continuity.
What possible role can digitalisation play in supporting an MME’s growth.
