MENLO PARK, Calif., May 3, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Robert Half Management Resources will present a session on soft skills at the upcoming Financial Executives International Leadership Summit on May 6 in Las Vegas. Career and hiring expert Paul McDonald with Robert Half will be joined by Kurt Amundson, chief financial officer at GoPro, and Anup Singh, chief financial officer at Nimble Storage.

The program, "Sounding the Death Knell for Soft Skills," explores the non-technical abilities CFOs are prioritizing within the finance function for themselves and their teams.

The session will focus on the following:

  • Best practices for identifying non-technical skills in the recruiting process
  • Options for reinforcing skills development through formal and informal training
  • Tips for underscoring accountability via performance reviews and rewards
