After a sold-out 2011 event, the CFO Corporate Performance Management Conference will return to New York in January 2012. Bringing together CFOs and other senior finance executives from across the country, this year’s conference will focus on tactics, tools, and technology–introducing new strategies to drive and monitor sustainable, profitable growth in a changing environment. The Conference will be held in New York from January 29 to January 31, 2012 at the Grand Hyatt Hotel.

The 2012 CFO Corporate Performance Management Conference offers attendees keynote presentations, networking opportunities, professional forums and panels led by industry experts on topics such as: The Risk Management Curve, The Human Side of CPM, Enterprise Information Systems, Profitability Management, and Globalizing Performance Management. Through case studies and peer-to-peer discussions, attendees will learn about and share new techniques that will help them better manage performance and analytical reporting in todayýs unsettled economic environment.

“CPM is a timely platform for the mutually beneficial exchange of ideas and solutions to some of the most difficult performance issues CFOs face today,” said Deborah Patton, SVP Conferences. “This yearýs program will show you how to run a business in a changing environment with complex customer markets and delivery platforms.”
The keynote address will be delivered by Robert S. Kaplan, Baker Foundation Professor, Harvard Business School.
