CONNECT WITH THE BUSINESS COMMUNITY.

SHARE BEST PRACTICES.

LEARN FROM TOP BUSINESS LEADERS.

The Mission of the CFO Forum is Simple:

TO PROVIDE A PLATFORM FOR CFOS TO ENHANCE THEIR PRACTICAL KNOWLEDGE AND BUILD A STRONGER CONNECTION TO THE BUSINESS COMMUNITY.

Founded in 2013, the CFO Forum is the initiative of Chris White of Savills Studley to create a productive community for CFOs to connect with their colleagues, exchange best practices, and gain access to exclusive research and thought leadership of expert business leaders. We knew the key to building a strong and successful community was to start with an engaged advisory board and thought leaders. We have strategically partnered with diverse international firms and Emory’s Goizueta Business School, to offer broad experience to the CFO community.

We offer opportunities for the CFO community to connect both in person and through the greater digital world in two ways:

Our exclusive quarterly in-person forums where we host a combination of high-profile speakers, panel discussions, and engaging education content.

A digital and innovative message board to stay connected, share resources, and grow knowledge on specific topics—beyond structured events.
