CNBC Net/Net is an event-driven editorial franchise that examines the ways companies are promoting and managing innovation, exploiting rapid change and using technology to accelerate growth exponentially.

In this time of rapid technological innovation, shifting demographics and consumer behavior, change comes lightning fast. Net/Net is not a tactical guide or a how-to workshop. We are exploring big trends–technological, demographic, consumer–that will have medium to long-term impact on companies.

Who should attend: Net/Net is geared toward senior financial executives.
No longer a ‘chief accountant,’ today’s financial chiefs are increasingly relied upon by CEOs and boards for strategic guidance. Financial leaders need to be constantly updating their knowledge and expectations or they will be left behind. Net/Net, with a tone of urgency and nimbleness, helps our audience make confident, informed decisions.
