4 groups of young, ambitious finance professionals have worked very hard the last couple of months to come up with a solution for the challenges of the CFOs of Greenyard, SD Worx and Upgrade Estate. During the award ceremony, they will find out who goes home with the award and can call themselves Best Young Finance Team of the Year!

We end the evening with a walking dinner and networking reception, where we can put our lessons learned of the presentation in practice.
