In one day, we'll provide you with the knowledge, tools, and insights to move the needle on financial planning, forecasting, benchmarking, and other topics. The MAPI Financial Planning and Analysis Forum is a best-practice sharing event for finance professionals from B2B manufacturers, featuring roundtable discussions and peer-led case studies on improving financial effectiveness and outcomes. MAPI has a proven track record of putting on outstanding events filled with relevant best practices for manufacturing leaders.
Who Should Attend?
Managers, directors involved in cash management, financial analysis, financial planning, and anyone with interest in financial analysis.
What makes MAPI forums different?
- Roundtable discussions: Rich dialogue on the issues you care about, moderated to keep discussions focused on the “so what”.
- Peer to peer sharing: There are no talking heads. Almost all of the content is delivered by your peers at global manufacturers, sharing experiences candidly.
- No death by PowerPoint: While our presenters deliver outstanding content, we schedule ample time for interaction and Q&A, so that you can dig deep on the topics that matter.
- No pitches: Our forums never have more than one sponsor, and there are no sales pitches. None.
- Balance of strategy and utility: Our forums deliver great content around strategy and peer-tested frameworks for putting those strategies into action.
Case studies led by peer manufacturers; focus is on dialogue, best practices, and lessons learned; attendance limited to facilitate openness.
We kick off at 6:00 p.m. on June 5th with a networking reception and dinner across the street from the hotel. Our day on June 6th starts with breakfast at 7:00 a.m., and wraps by 4:30 p.m.
