Royal College of Surgeons - 18th May 2016

Finance Directors: Are you looking for a cure to those minor niggles and major headaches? Time to make an appointment at the FD Surgery!

You’re an FD who doesn’t just crunch the numbers - you shape your firm’s strategy.

Responsible for everything from recruitment to IT and premises to suppliers, you thrive on the rewards of being in the driving seat - but can find it a lonely and stressful existence when peer-level advice is hard to find.

The FD Surgery has been designed to provide this expert advice whilst diagnosing and treating business ailments.

With a programme created by Real Business, the UK’s most-read website for high-growth businesses, and a range of industry experts, you’ll join fellow FDs for this highly interactive day.


The FDs’ Excellence Awards

From 17:40pm, presented by Just Eat's Finance chief Mike Wroe

Celebrating the UK’s very best accountancy firms, banks, technology providers and other suppliers and advisers – as voted for by more than 1,856 Finance Directors in the 2016 FDs’ Satisfaction Survey.
