Last week, the Cloudian Global team along with hundreds of companies, finance executives, as well as other business professionals, assembled virtually to bring to life the first CFO Virtual Summit in the history of the Philippines. The CFO Virtual Summit 2020 was 2-day exclusive event successfully hosted on the web on November 19 and 20, 2020.
The CFO Virtual Summit’s title was Leading into The Future of Change and Digital Economy. This translated into a 5-point agenda focused on igniting discussions revolving around fast growing technologies and its effect on businesses from a top-level financial perspective.
