It’s been described as the toughest job in the organization – and for good reason. Like the mythological Sisyphus rolling a boulder uphill (only to watch it roll back down) the CFO must manage the close and consolidation process of the company’s financial statements every month, every quarter and every year.

Join a power panel of CFOs, including Ian Charles of Host Analytics, Tony Meister of Intermatic and Mark Pishon of the Indiana Economic Development Organization, as they discuss lessons learned from closing the books after 2014 drew to a close.

During this Webcast, you will learn:


  • How to streamline period-end close processes;

  • Secrets for quality-checking financial statements;

  • Techniques for sharing information with internal and external stakeholders; and

  • Best practices for complying with disclosure requirements and reducing audit fees.
