KPMG's 8th CFO Forum
"CFOs: Leaders During the Downturn"
June 10 - 11, 2009 at the Athens Hilton Hotel
KPMG in Greece is pleased to announce its 8th CFO Forum titled "CFOs: Leaders During the Downturn" to take place on June 10 - 11 at the Athens Hilton Hotel. The event will be held with the support of the British Hellenic Chamber of Commerce.
This year, KPMG has the honor and pleasure to welcome, as key-note speaker of the 8th CFO Forum, world renowned Stern School of Business professor, Nouriel Roubini - the man who foresaw the financial crisis in 2006.
Professor Nouriel Roubini - also known as "Dr. Doom", due to his forecasts of an impending "doom" of the global financial system - is a world-class international macroeconomist, author, and Chairman of the innovative economic consultancy RGE Monitor (Roubini Global Economics), and is recognized around the globe as "one of the top 50 most important people in Finance today" (Institutional Investor Magazine). In 2006, he spoke to a very skeptical audience about his predictions, facing resistance and indifference. Today, he is one of Fortune Magazine's "10 gurus one should know", and receives invitations to speak in front of hundreds of audiences worldwide including the US Congress. During his three-hour highly interactive set of sessions, professor Roubini will analyze the current international financial landscape and will share his forecasts for the years to come. He will also look at the role of CFOs during the current financial situation, and will discuss - with participants - issues specific to the Greek market.
Attendees will also have the opportunity to enjoy several presentations, panel discussions, and practical workshops run by a number of distinguished speakers, among which are prominent personalities primarily from the area of finance. These sessions will focus on the latest financial issues and trends, such as IFRSs, Tax, Cost-Reduction Management, and Cash & Liquidity Management, creating a dynamic environment of high-level strategic thinking.
