This Year’s Theme ~ CFO Masterclass

On the heels of a global crisis which forces all of us, without exception, to rethink the new normal, this year’s conference theme, CFO Masterclass, will subtly reflect this whole new urgency.  CFOs have always faced a level of uncertainty. It comes with the role.  Today’s uncertainty is more immediate and profound. CFOs face new urgent challenges in how their companies operate, ensuring the well-being of their people, and responding to market-place disruption and financial solvency stress.

At the same time, CFOs need to maintain the long view.  It’s well documented that executives who can maintain both an immediate and longer view are more successful in the long term.  Looking forward, CFOs face profound continuing shifts which are changing the nature of how business is conducted. They must be prepared to respond strategically now while focusing on their immediate challenges. Examples of needed strategic responses include: responding to new competitors, rethinking business models, successfully innovating their services and products faster, making new investments in technologies, and adapting new work style arrangements.  Join us for conversations delving into these issues during “CFO Masterclass”.


“Today, every single CFO is facing unprecedented challenges – probably the biggest hurdles of their careers.   We’re so fortunate to have leading experts, true masters in their field, speaking at this year’s conference, willing to share their own experiences.  This kind of access should catapult our CFOLC community through this and beyond.
Jack McCullough, Founder & President, CFO Leadership Council
