The future of finance is all about managing across functions, building the right combination of capabilities, and establishing a strong data foundation. On-going FutureCFO dialogues with finance leaders across the function reveal a continued commitment to driving growth through digital transformation.

However, the maelstrom of non-aligned priorities, talent shortages, legacy processes and too many options when it comes to technologies make the road to growth in 2024 a formidable challenge for even the most seasoned finance professionals.

A Gartner’s research affirms that organisations face a medium-term environment characterised by tepid demand growth, stubbornly high costs and constrained access to capital – referring to the combination as a deadweight economic condition. “Absent fortuitous events such as a surprise end to geopolitical conflict, a swift halt to inflation or the quick realisation of dramatic productivity gains from AI, CFOs should expect many of the underlying economic trends contributing to the deadweight economy to persist across their strategic planning horizon.

The World Bank predicted that Thailand’s economic growth is projected to grow to 3.2% and inflation is expected to slow down in 2024. Also, Thailand’s planned digital wallet program may boost near-term growth further by 0.5% to 1% in 2024 and 2025 if implemented. However, heightened geopolitical conflict and high oil prices may pose downside risks to this economic outlook. Fabrizio Zarcone, World Bank Country Manager for Thailand said “Thailand has set a clear goal of achieving net-zero emissions by 2065 and 30 percent reduction in emissions by 2030”. The country’s ambitious move to a lower-carbon growth path and special focus on carbon pricing will position Thailand as a regional leader in green and sustainable growth in the coming years.

While the Thailand’s growth expects a recovery, there are some challenges in 2024 that could derail the recovery. Coupled with Thailand’s transition into a low-carbon society, how would these new developments impact finance leaders in Thailand?

This 2024, the 2nd Annual FutureCFO Thailand Conference will be held in Bangkok, Thailand on 10 July 2024, bringing together seasoned finance professionals to uncover:

At this year’s in-person event, we will bring together some of the leading minds in finance in the country to solve real-world business problems today and seek to present use cases to answer critical challenges facing the various finance functions such as:

  • How to sustain enterprise’s growth engine amidst challenging time
  • Transformation roadmap for success in the future
  • Best practices in riding the transformation challenges
  • Tactics for evaluating digital competencies across the function
  • How to build realistic and trustworthy forecasts
  • Strategies to shorten the digital financial close
  • Top challenges in data, data technology and governance management
  • AI and smart automation priorities and use cases
  • People management for stronger, digitally competent teams


The challenges ahead present real and economic tailwinds that can derail ongoing efforts to transform organisations into engines of innovation and growth. For the finance team, there remains clear opportunities to lead by example out of the potential maelstrom that lies ahead to bring about sustained growth in the years ahead.

Allan Tan, Group Editor-in-Chief, CXOCIETY


Panel Discussion I: Achieving Sustainable Growth and Cost Efficiency

Dealing with overall macroeconomic conditions, increased interest rate, rising capital costs and geopolitical challenges will worry many senior finance executives in 2024.

This session will share the latest tax updates for businesses in Thailand. It will address not only the taxation challenges, but also the potential benefits and incentives that business can leverage.

  • Thailand’s tax outlook for finance leaders in 2024-2025
  • Digital tax administration: Thailand’s evolving tax landscape and how businesses can benefit

Keynote II: Empowering Finance with Artificial Intelligence and Intelligent Automation

Gartner, McKinsey and many other analysts predict that Artificial Intelligence (AI), including Generative AI, is one of the top investment areas for companies seeking a competitive advantage in 2024 and beyond. The AI revolution is impacting all businesses and organizations, and we cannot afford to ignore the opportunity to improve operational efficiency, reduce costs, and increase user satisfaction.

  • How to make sense of the AI landscape and identify where to start
  • Leveraging AI and Intelligent Automation to increase finance process efficiency
  • Increasing efficiencies in Accounts Payable processes with Invoice Automation, including Electronic Invoicing

Finance leaders saw a new priority as they steer their organisations through an uncertain growth outlook in 2024: Artificial Intelligence (AI) deployment.

As much as this transformative technology is a powerful ally in shaping enterprise’s sustainable and prosperous future in the age of innovation, there are considerations that CFOs need to ponder before they confidently embark on adopting AI for their business.

  • How is AI shaping the future of business and finance teams?
  • Prioritising AI projects that deliver ROI

Fireside Chat: Incorporating Agility into Planning, Forecasting and Budgeting

VUCA or not, cash flow is indisputably the lifeblood of the business. Fulfilling short-term payment obligations have become challenging to some organisations, yet leveraging on credits or borrowing is not quite an answer either as interest rates continue to grow.

Making data-based forecasts and financial strategy will equip finance leaders to tackle obstacles and provide a clear picture of their financial trajectory throughout the coming year.

  • Cash flow planning and frequent forecasting amidst uncertainty
  • Meeting cash forecasting challenges
  • Improving cash forecasting accuracy, liquidity planning and management and working capital with data and modern technologies
  • Leveraging AI and ML to build realistic and trustworthy forecasts even without reliable recent historical data


Giovanni Colella, Director of Finance, OUTPOST


Panel Discussion IV: Building a Sustainable Path towards Future Talent Management

A recent 2023’s Corporate Finance & Accounting Talent Study reveals that 68% of CFOs and Controllers find it difficult to find finance and accounting talent for their organisation.

Talent war was a big issue in the past few years and the growing talent competition is still expected to be a hot topic for many CFOs in 2024. This said finance leaders will need to overhaul their hiring and retention strategies to address staffing shortages.

  • The characters of finance talent management landscape in 2024
  • Developing talent pool and management program that supports company’s sustainability and resiliency
  • Expanding boundaries of people, systems and technologies
  • Best practices in people management for stronger and digitally competent teams
  • Creating a balanced approach in recruiting, on-boarding, training and up-skilling finance talents in the next 3-5 years
