What could a part time Finance Director or Chief Financial Officer deliver for my business?

Posted: Wednesday, 16th September 2015

Wednesday 21st October 2015, Optic, St Asaph, 10:00am-12:30pm including buffet lunch 

Whilst large businesses invariably employ a full time Finance Director or Chief Financial Officer very few smaller businesses have senior level financial expertise within their management teams.  For SME Managing Directors or business owners who cannot afford to employ a full time Finance Director or CFO contracting on a part time basis is now a realistic and affordable option that still ensures highly experienced, strategic financial expertise is available flexibly to support the growth and future profitability of the business.

BIC Innovation has provided a Part Time FD/CFO Service for over 10 years to businesses across North and Mid Wales through Alun Lewis BSc ACMA and Richard Roberts FCA.

The Briefing Workshop, led by Alun Lewis and Richard Roberts of BIC Innovation, will enable you to understand the key areas of the role of a FD or CFO and how it could potentially benefit your business. There will also be the opportunity for private 1-2-1 discussions at end of the workshop.
