Join us on Friday, September 18th for an in-person lunch and roundtable conversation with Rick Nordvold the CEO of Growth Operators and former CFO of Golf Galaxy and Griffin International. Rick will be sharing insights into how finance leaders are leveraging the new Workday Adaptive Planning platform as a “single source of truth”, allowing them to take action on their business today. He will speak to the power of having the ability to make decisions with confidence and the inherent costs associated with making decisions with a lack of clarity.

Following the discussion with Rick, network with peers and hear from fellow FP&A professionals on how they are using the Adaptive Planning technology to drive value to their organization.

The Adaptive solution delivers on-demand data from a single source with an intuitive interface. It provides the insight business leaders and FP&A teams need to support strategic discussions and make data-driven decisions. Users quickly recognize the value of making confident decisions and agree that the Adaptive solution offers:

• A reliable modeling solution to drive strategic discussions rather than focusing on data gathering and integrity

• The capability to create a base case which is easily modified with multiple variables for scenario planning

• An advanced, yet intuitive interface with an easy-to-follow layout which is especially useful for cross-functional teams

Space is limited, please RSVP here!

*Social distancing guidelines will be followed to create a safe environment for all. Guidelines and lunch selection will be sent once registration is confirmed.
