Stay relevant in finance!

About The Webinar

When the Covid-19 lockdown hit, Investec Specialist Bank CFO Marlé van der Walt was faced with a number of mammoth financial challenges. As it was financial year end, she and her team had to reperform year-end valuations and impairments, as well as rebudget and reforecast for the next three years – all over a two-week period. She also had to account for a deficit of R1.2 billion arising from the disruption of Covid-19. And she had to respond to the business-wide demands of lockdown. 

In this compelling webinar, brought to you by Oracle, Marlé will reveal that it takes a combination of cutting-edge, responsive technology, and agile finance leadership to survive “black swan” events. She will reveal her three-point plan for ensuring that you and your business never get stuck in the past, and will highlight why it’s important for finance executives to make sure that they continue to evolve and adapt along with their people. 

She will be joined by Audrey Mbuyazi, business solution lead at Oracle, who will share her views on evolving to remain relevant in a fast-paced and often surprising work environment
