Our guests bring their extensive experience working with CFOs and finance professionals to the table to discuss how generative AI is moving beyond mere automation to become a strategic partner in enhancing productivity, controlling costs, and driving revenue growth.

Balakrishnan and Akhtar discuss Deloitte's latest findings, which highlight that an overwhelming 94% of companies are betting on AI for their success strategies. They discuss the way businesses can continue to embrace innovation and maintain control in the financial sector.

Listen now as they peer into the future and imagine a world where the role of the CFO expands beyond finance and describe how CPAs can update their skills to help capitalize on the adoption of generative AI.
