The CFO Summit, which attracts an audience of more than 500 of the nation's top chief financial officers and senior financial executives, provides an opportunity to learn and discuss high level strategies and practical insights relevant to financial decision makers. This year's outstanding speakers include CFOs from Western Union, Docusign, Boston Beer and many more.

"A CFO is known for being rational and thoughtful, which is often the appropriate mindset. But, there are times when leaders who make bold and decisive moves have the greatest impact, and this is true for CFOs too," said Jeremy Seidman, Co-Chair of the MIT Sloan CFO Summit. "This premier Summit will empower attendees to define their own future rather than have it dictated at their companies."
