Finance professionals from CooperVision sites around the world gathered for the company’s Global Finance Conference from April 16–19 in Huntington Beach, California. Based on overwhelmingly positive responses, participants agreed the event advanced global alignment across the Finance organization, which will help CooperVision achieve its financial objectives and goals for the OneVision business transformation initiative.
The conference explored OneVision through presentations led by the Finance Business Process Lead (BPL) team. Highlights included an overview of the OneVision mission and the global Oracle ERP implementation process, one of the cornerstones of the company’s business transformation efforts. “Now I have a clear view of the OneVision journey,” one participant noted.
John Casella, the company’s Chief Information Officer, presented his vision for IT, while Finance representatives from each region, Global Operations and the Controllership highlighted continuous improvement accomplishments through a series of showcase presentations. “The showcase approach was varied and interesting,” another attendee observed. “Overall, there was a good mix of content, interaction and fun.”
On the team-building front, participants attended a Beach Boardwalk-themed dinner featuring a photo booth, fortune teller, arm wrestling machine, caricature artists and a large CooperVision surfboard ice sculpture surrounded by a candy and dessert bar. The team is already looking forward to the next Global Finance Conference.
