Survive To Thrive In This New Reality!
CFO Leadership Council Announces The CFO Academy

CFO’s, We’ve Got Your Acceptance Letter for Summer School! Announcing our first-ever CFO Academy, a series of ask the expert virtual roundtables on a variety of hot topics to help CFOs come out of COVID-19 ahead.  The CFO Academy is unlike anything the CFO Leadership Council has offered before. It is designed to be an immersive educational experience in which our CFOLC community can learn from thought leaders in an intimate, informal virtual environment.  Each of these 50 minute vignettes will be highly interactive and led by industry thought leaders.  Seating for each virtual roundtable is limited by design. Attendees can choose multiple sessions from a list of defined topics created by CFOLC together with subject matter experts to address what CFOs need to know now Reserve your seat at each table!


When CFO week was rescheduled, this created a void for finance chiefs just when they were facing the greatest challenge of their career.  We approached our partners to come up with an alternative way to bring impactful content to our community and came up with the CFO Academy.  We are excited to be able to bring this opportunity to finance chiefs and their teams. 
Jack McCullough, Founder & President, CFO Leadership Council
