The Fortune CFO collaborative will gather in person on February 28 in Houston from 6:15–9:00 PM at MARCH, 1624 Westheimer Rd, Houston, TX.

The CFO collaborative is an invitation-only group of CFOs from leading companies which meets virtually and in person for deep-dive discussions on what is top of mind for finance leaders in 2023.

In February, our conversation will focus on DETERMINING THE VALUE PROPOSITION FOR GENAI. The conversation will be lead by Fortune CFO Daily Senior Writer Sheryl Estrada and Fortune Senior Editor-at-Large Geoff Colvin and feature an interview with  Niccolo de Masi, Chairman of The Futurum Group

Together, we will explore how companies can best capitalize on the “AI Revolution” and both the operational and organizational changes that businesses need to make to incorporate GenAI. Over dinner, leading CFOs from Houston and beyond will dive into AI and the finance function, examining ways in which CFOs can and should incorporate AI into their workflow. We will also take a look at how to overcome obstacles in AI implementation. Complimentary participation is limited and by invitation only.
