The Strategic CFO

The Strategic CFO is an intensive two-day workshop designed to enable your full potential - leading across the enterprise and becoming the right hand of the CEO. Operating across the enterprise, division, or start-up requires a CFO with special skills recognized and trusted by both colleagues and board members – most of all, your CEO. This workshop follows the LEAD Method℠, which asks can this CFO:

  • Listen and lead with influence
  • Empower the team as a trusted advisor
  • Address change in the face of disruption
  • Deliver business results

The CFO who can make good business decisions that increase shareholder value is always the best choice to lead programs, forecasts, or even the organization.

Praise for The Strategic CFO

I had the honor to attend the Strategic CFO in 2018. It was a great program with focus groups of experienced VP of finance, controllers, and CFOs who bring diversified perspectives to the group discussions. The workshop has a good combination of theoretical frameworks, case studies, and group discussions which are very interactive. I found the workshop is so much more beneficial than going to a general conference or mixer. I would recommend this workshop to any seasoned financial leader who is seeking to be a strategic CFO.

I was energized and excited to bring back the concepts I learned in the Strategic CFO to my workplace. I found great value in the Strategic CFO and only wish that I had attended 10 years earlier in my career.

The Strategic CFO is a well-structured course and provides a good overview of concepts to be applied to various situations and challenges as the CFO is viewed as a trusted advisor that needs to look beyond the financial numbers. It was excellent to learn how to apply the Systems Level Thinking to various issues and challenges with practical case studies; a view to integrate strategy, operations and financials to make effective decisions; a focus at creating Shareholder Value! Highly recommend the course to anyone aspiring to be a Strategic CFO!
