3 STRATEGY Optimizing The Revenue Opportunity Carter Hinckley, Managing Director, Blue Ridge Partners A transformation has occurred in sales and marketing. Buyers have access to a wealth of information enabling them to narrow their options and negotiate from a point of strength. Sellers need to adapt to these changes and CFO s have an important role in helping sales and marketing succeed in this new environment. In fact CFO s are uniquely positioned to optimize the revenue opportunity in their companies. During this session we will examine today s key success factors for sales and marketing and how CFOs in the most successful companies have contributed to the maximization of sales and profitability. 1. Five ways CFO s can help optimize the sales opportunity 2. The error many CFO s make when they try to optimize the sales opportunity 3. Obstacles to improving sales performance 4. How finance can assess their effectiveness in supporting sales Carter has more than 30 years of experience in sales, senior management and consulting all focused on helping firms grow sales more effectively. Most of his experience has been in the software, technology and financial services industries, working with firms in transition due to acquisition, product maturity, or changing markets and channels.

5 Ensuring IT Investments Produce Business Value: An Agricultural Approach Rob Collins, former CIO, Cognos & City of Ottawa Dr. Gerald Grant, Director Ph.D. Program, Sprott School of Business, Carleton University & Organizations spend large sums on Information and Communications Technology but are often left wondering if they get any returns on these investments. IT is seen as essential to transforming organizations but too often just consumes funds without meeting expectations. CFOs are frustrated by the focus on technology that often cannot be related to the organizational objectives. As a CFO, are you in a position to: 1. Understand how your IT investment/spend fits with organizational objectives 2. Assess the business value that will be returned from a specific IT investment 3. Assess the overall business value of the large IT budget 4. Kill IT projects early if they are not going to provide the necessary ROI Dr. Gerald Grant of the Sprott School of Business at Carleton University and Rob Collins, former CIO of Cognos and the City of Ottawa, argue that instead of applying a rigid engineering approach to governing and managing IT, executives should think more like a farmer, taking an agricultural view that gives primacy to delivering the harvest : business value resulting from IT investments. By focusing on that harvest, instead of only the schedule, organizations can ensure that they get the results that they need or that they can kill projects early before they have wasted precious resources. It also provides a basis to compare IT investments to other business investments. This approach is not limited to new projects. This same Agricultural Model can be used to audit existing IT systems for business value. This can provide the basis for better management of those large IT budgets and create common ground between IT and the rest of the organization. Rob Collins is an experienced technology executive with has more than 30 years experience. Most recently Rob was Transitional CIO for the City of Ottawa where he was brought in to turn around that organization s approach to IT. Rob is currently collaborating with Dr. Gerald Grant of Carleton University s Sprott School of Business. They are building on Dr. Grant s research to create professional development tools that will help organizations focus on value and improve returns from investment in IT. Gerald Grant is an Associate Professor, Coordinator of the Information Systems Area, and Director of the Centre for Information Technology, Organizations, and People (CITOP) at the Sprott School of Business, Carleton University in Ottawa, Canada. He obtained his PhD in Information Systems from the London School of Economics and Political Science, London, United Kingdom.

Increasingly, CFOs are playing a key role in developing and implementing strategy within their company, partnering with CEOs to creatively design growth opportunities for the future.

7 CFO Effective Communications To All Levels Within The Organization Kelly Gall, Group CFO/COO, Interbrand Corporation This is a discussion group or executive exchange of knowledge and expertise. Join this small round table setting of 8 to 12 peers moderated by a fellow CFO to share your insights and questions on this topic. Questions may be submitted to the moderator prior to the event. In this forum, we ll explore together the complexities of effective communication to multiple audiences within your organization. As CFO, how do you effectively communicate to your Board, to your leadership partners and to staff? Do all audiences receive the same message or the same level of detail? Likely not as our communications must be appropriately tailored to each audience and objective. Should be pretty simple, right? But it isn t. In today s fast-paced business environment which is demanding more and more transparency coming from all levels of the organization, planning what to share and how to communicate effectively and with clarity requires more strategy than ever before. In a moderated discussion, we will focus on strategies to: Understand your audience. Who are you speaking to? What is their level of knowledge, understanding and interest in what you will be communicating? Start with the objective. What are you communicating and why? What do you expect the audience to take away from your communication? Think about the level of detail. What level if information is required? Too much or too little information can derail the objective of your communication. Decide the level of detail and transparency by linking this decision directly to your objective. Ensure clarity. How do we ensure our communication is clear and understood as we intend it? Address today s requirement for more transparency coming from some very unexpected levels within your organization. 1. Gain insights on how to tailor messaging based on the audience, topic and objective 2. Learn to better navigate the complexities of transparency as well as clarity 3. Learn some key strategies for messaging to non-financial professionals Kelly Gall serves as Global Chief Operating/Chief Financial Officer for the Interbrand Group of companies. She is responsible for the financial health and operational performance of the network s 33 offices spanning 27 countries. Kelly's 25-year background in financial and operational leadership has been centered upon the improvement of business performance through efficiency and process excellence.
