KPMG Finance Leader Morris Treadway and Political Commentator James Carville to Headline Tagetik In Touch Conference
New Orleans event includes 40 sessions covering all aspects of budgeting, planning, forecasting, and financial reporting required by modern finance
Tagetik, a visionary leader in global performance management software solutions, today announced that KPMG international finance leader Morris Treadway and political analyst James Carville will keynote the company’s tenth annual global conference, Tagetik in Touch, from April 24 – 27, at the Royal Sonesta in New Orleans.
Treadway’s keynote, “Are CFOs Ready for the Challenge?” will present findings from KPMG’s View from the Top, a recent survey of 549 global CEOs on the role of CFOs in business today. He will discuss the unique challenges and transformative attributes of the CFO’s role, the implications to finance and other functions, and what CFOs need to do to close the gap between expectations and the reality on the ground.
“We have entered the age of the Renaissance CFO,” said Treadway, global head of financial management and global enterprise performance management center of excellence lead. “Today’s CFO is expected to operate on a global scale, leveraging financial data and analytics to achieve profitable growth, capitalizing on a dynamic regulatory environment and nurturing and acquiring top talent. He or she is managing a vast ecosystem of expanding complexity with the goal of achieving competitive advantage.” Treadway’s keynote will be held at 9:15 a.m. on Tuesday, April 26.
Carville’s keynote, “Politics and the 2016 Race to the White House,” will examine the political power shifts over the past years and dissect the extreme forces shaping the 2016 presidential election. A native of New Orleans, Carville will also discuss what trends from the last two decades mean for the future and will share favorite political and personal stories from his three decades in politics. Carville’s keynote will be held at 5:45 p.m. on Monday, April 25.
Overall, the conference agenda encompasses 40 sessions, covering topics critical to modern finance such as what-if modeling and scenario planning, forecasting, dashboarding, and narrative reporting, in addition to product roadmap details, the direction of the CPM market and enterprise cloud technology. Tagetik will also host a French Quarter scavenger hunt on Sunday afternoon to benefit the Boys and Girls Club of Southeast Louisiana.
“These conferences are hugely important to our customer partnerships and contribute to the consistently high marks our solution gets for customer satisfaction,” said Manuel Vellutini, Tagetik co-CEO. “Our customers gain from the direct guidance and insights offered by our finance and technology experts who are onsite. In turn, the input and suggestions we get from our customers influence our development priorities and help us keep up with the practical and strategic needs of today’s forward-thinking financial leaders.”
