Circles of Practice

The A4S ‘Circles of Practice’ (CoPs) are more informal regional or sector level groups which provide finance leaders with the opportunity to gain insights from one another, by sharing practical approaches, exchanging information and knowledge.

The Gulf Finance Leaders CoP was launched at the first CFO meeting in Abu Dhabi in November 2015.  The members come together to develop and adopt leading finance practice by gaining insights from one another, sharing practical approaches and overseeing the development of case studies and guidance materials to share with others.
