Being CFO is a challenge.
CFOs are expected to be key contributors to the success of a company. They are regularly are called upon to make tough decisions, at times without the support of a sounding board.
Being CFO can be lonely but it doesn’t have to be.
Last year we launched a CFO Peer Group. CFOs from across North America meet in person and virtually. They have regular conference calls and spontaneous one-on-ones. In November they all convened for a day in Chicago. These CFOs found a comfortable setting in which to learn and share together with their peers.
In 2016, we are expanding our group. Members of this exclusive CFO Peer Group will have access to:
- Annual in-person one day meeting in November 2016. Our first in-person CFO Peer Group meeting in Chicago this past November was a great success. These CFOs took time out of their busy schedules, spending one full day out of the office to meet their peers and discuss issues that were top of mind while networking and learning from others (just like you).
- Regularly scheduled phone calls (8 times / year) where you will have an opportunity to speak with, interact and network with fellow CFOs. The topic of conversation will be what interests you. You will have the opportunity to discuss the challenges you face as CFO with your peers, and to listen, learn and network.
- CFO Questions Forum, where you will be able to submit questions to your peers at any time. This could be helpful when looking for a template, facing a challenging relationship situation in your business, or need assistance to access a referral. Your CFO Peers will help you and you will be there to support them.
- The opportunity to reach out spontaneously and confidentially to peers who you will come to respect and trust.
Unlike other CFO-oriented programs you may have attended in the past that spoke to you from a podium and a PowerPoint, our CFO Peer Group allows you and your peers to discuss topics that interest you, that are current, immediate and relevant to you. You drive the conversation – our role is to facilitate.

There are only a few spaces available.
Meetings start in February. If you are a CFO and this interests you, please email us.
