Linkedin has become an invaluable networking tool for business people to connect with peers and stakeholders. By joining a group on Linkedin, group members have the opportunity to raise profile, share opinion and best practice through group discussions. Since 2008, FDE has maintained a qualified Linkedin group of CFOs and Finance Directors, who participate in regular discussions moderated by FDE. The themes raised on group discussions are very topical and often end up on the editorial agenda of the FDE magazine itself. Members who provide the most insightful comments in the group discussions are often invited to participate in other FDE activities such as roundtables, briefings or become interviewees for the magazine .

The FDE group is a useful way of connecting with my CFO peers. I have found valuable new connections by joining this group and I am always interested in the discussions that take place and the latest news relevant to the CFO in Europe. I am also impressed with the integrity of the group and its strict admission policy, which means I do not get hassled by head hunters, recruiters and sales people by being a member. In short: I recommend joining this group.

The discussions on the FDE group on LinkedIn are really interesting and engaging and have prompted me to contribute my own ideas. I find that by keeping close to the CFO community, especially during times of economic uncertainty, I can benchmark and gauge how other CFOs are going about their job. My own views and opinions have been well received by FDE resulting in mbecoming an editorial contributor for a forthcoming edition of the magazine.
