Better Decisions Through Shared Information
Real Value & Tangible Benfits - Effectively Delivered
"I highly recommend this group to all CFOs. For me it has been a great, time-efficient source of information-----from the other CFOs to the guest speakers to the other resources available through The Collaborative. The facilitator keeps things moving right along and much is accomplished in those three hours. The Collaborative CFO WorkGroup gives me a chance to step out the the office environment and see things with a new, clear perspective."
Kim Nelson, CFO, SPS Commerce
How The Collaborative CFO WorkGroup Works
The Collaborative CFO WorkGroup provides an on-going forum for emerging market CFOs who exchange business experiences and knowledge in order to gain:
- Decision options and opinions
- Resolution of business issues facing the CFO every day
"The Collaborative CFO WorkGroup is an outstanding forum. As growth company executives, we can get isolated. The benchmarking and networking with my peers has been extremely helpful. I've saved countless hours and have added substantially to our bottom line through my involvement. In one instance, I saved over $20,000 on contract negotiations with information and advice I received at our CFO WorkGroup meetings"
Fred Caslavka, CFO, Landscape Structures

It’s well worth the time commitment to connect with other CFO’s, from a variety of organizations and backgrounds, about issues that we are currently facing and to brainstorm solutions together.

"It has been great to exchange ideas on a regular basis with others who understand the issues I face.
As CFOs we are all the 'lead horses' at our respective companies reading financial matters. The CFO WorkGroup offers me the chance to get the opinions of my peers. Recently, our company was in negotiations for an acquisition and I was able to negotiate a better transaction because of the insights provided by others in the group who had faced similar circumstances. The Collaborative CFO WorkGroup has been an outstanding value for me in terms of time and money"
