The CFO Awards

Book Your Seat

Join The CFO Awards on 17 November 2021

The annual CFO Awards recognises CFOs of listed companies, large corporations, state-owned entities and government institutions, and award them for outstanding performance and leadership. The eighth annual CFO Awards will be a celebration of the finance profession at the close of one of the most challenging years in living memory. Hosted by celebrated comedian Loyiso Madinga, the 2021 awards ceremony will adhere to strict Covid-19 protocols and numbers will be limited in line with the government’s safety requirements for public events. The community is hungry for an opportunity to relax, network and enjoy themselves. Never before has there been such a need to come together and celebrate the finest in finance.
