hosted by
The Jacksonville CFO Leadership Council
Tuesday, November 28, 2017

Today’s economic environment is dynamic. Evolving. Potentially volatile. And today’s CFOs have a lot to think about. What’s the current administration doing to improve the economy? Where are interest rates headed? What about inflation in 2018? A smart CFO needs an informed line of sight on where it’s all headed. We’ll help you understand what it all means, so you make informed decisions, avoid unnecessary risks, and proactively position your organization to seize opportunities as they emerge.

Learning Objectives

  • Gain insights of the current administration and likely ongoing economic effects
