With preparations already underway for the 12th annual Summit in Moscow in late October 2015, we look forward to many more positive and original case studies when the Russian CFO community next gathers together.
The eagerly-anticipated 11th annual Russian CFO Summit took place in its traditional timeslot at the end of October in Moscow, bringing together several hundred representatives of the CFO community from across Russia, literally from Kaliningrad to Sakhalin, and abroad. Delegates used the opportunity to share best practice with their peers on how to overcome the challenges posed by the unpredictable economic climate.
