As companies are booking nice results thanks to a moderate growth, the end of the low interest rates is also fast approaching. At the same time organisations have made use of opportunities to realise further cost savings by far-reaching automation in part thanks to the deployment of artificial intelligence. It seems however that the financial department finds itself in the midst of it  as they also have to provide answers to sometimes extreme challenges like terrorism or cyber criminality. Many challenges and opportunities which CFO's can discuss during CFO Conferenz.

Paul Lembrechts - CEO VRT

The new CEO of VRT will be facing some major challenges while guiding his broadcasting corporation through a quickly evolving media landscape. The digital shift is the biggest challenge for any media outlet. For VRT the necessity to deliver relevant news and information to a large audience makes matters even more complicated. Certainly young people choose to be informed by social media, but that immediately raises the question of reliability. The financial context is another factor: as a public service VRT is partly funded by the Flemish Government, but also has commercial activities that already amount to 40% of its budget. The competition with private media networks in the advertisement and sponsoring market is fierce and is a threat. Paul Lembrechts and his team developed a digital strategy to tackle these challenges head on. One of the key elements of the implementation is the level of entrepreneurship in the whole of the workforce. This includes a complete culture change.
