Mazars launches Web TV channel dedicated to CFOs
International audit and consulting group Mazars has launched ‘The Next CFO’, a web TV channel that explores the future of corporate finance departments. ‘The Next CFO’ gives audiences an insider’s view into the corporate finance department of tomorrow. A first of its kind, the web TV channel also serves as a fresh and modern platform for CFOs to share their vision of a rapidly changing profession.
Mazars’ customers, rather than its brand or services, are at the heart of stories featured on this channel. Seven original programmes paint a portrait of the Chief Financial Officer of tomorrow through candid interviews and debates from the profession’s key players. This innovative medium comes at a time of major transformation for both companies and their business models.
Commenting on this initiative, Mazars Malta Managing Partner Anthony Attard said that “By 2020, close to 40% of accounting transactions could be performed by machines, which would completely upend the finance department’s traditional tasks. The first episodes of ‘The Next CFO’ series demonstrate the main themes of this profound shift: change management, technological disruption, the need to recruit unconventional profiles, the importance of continuous learning, international and intercultural communication, and deeper interactions with the other corporate functions. The diversity of speakers, international reach and innovative approach of ‘The Next CFO’ make it a truly unique medium, designed to be a platform for discussion, reflection, and executive education for CFOs and future CFOs.”
This video streaming platform for financial decision-makers is available at www.thenextcfo.tv. It currently offers seven original programmes in English, and new episodes will be released regularly.
