In a statement released, Mr. Akin Naphtal, CEO of InstinctWave said this year’s award will precede a CFO Lecture for all finance executives in the country to discuss major issues, challenges and the way forward for finance professionals to explore their fields for growth.

Our goal for this year’s CFO Lecture and awards is to showcase the functions and role played by finance executives while honouring and acknowledging finance executives/CFOs and their teams including the organizations that provided them with relevant resources for their success and growth. He added.

The Ghana CFO Lecture is a key opportunity for finance leaders across all industry sectors to examine issues, share insights and best practices.
This year’s lecture will bring together innovative leaders in the country to talk about top issues in the profession, the role to driving innovation, business model optimization, strategic leadership, and proactive stakeholder engagement.

According to research, value creation rather than scorekeeping is the mission of today's corporate financial leaders, this it says does not just require CFOs to help executives, boards and business unit managers make effective decisions, it requires them to challenge decisions and in the end endorse them as well.

According to the statement, this year’s award category has been extended to all industry sectors in the country with the aim of recognizing and honouring the accomplishment of finance executives doing exceptionally well and contributing to the growth of their organization and nation at large.

The 2016 CFO Awards celebrate Ghana's top chief financial officers and senior finance executives at another awards networking dinner, the statement added.
