A: Whether it’s an emergency situation or you have a previously scheduled conflict, we understand and want to work with you. That’s why we have structured each day to be completely independent. While there is a brief review of the previous day, you can attend the days out of order. Simply, come to the next workshop for the day you missed. For example, you started your Day 1 series. You have a conflict and cannot attend Day 4. You can come to Day 4 of our next Series.
Another option is to schedule a one-on-one coaching session with your coach – there will be additional costs associated with this option. This is a case by case situation.
A: Between each workshop, students have several homework items to complete. Those include:
A: The Financial Leadership Workshops costs $4,000 per participant.
One-on-coaching coaching is $8,000 plus reasonable travel expenses.

A: The State of Texas Accounting Board authorizes The Strategic CFO to administer CPE credits to Certified Public Accountants.
A: A participant receives 9 CPE credits per workshop, totaling 36 credits upon completion of the Financial Leadership Workshop. Please notify The Strategic CFO team before the first workshop that you require CPE credits. Surveys must be completed after each workshop.
A: Our learning topics are selected based on two pieces of criteria: (1) what we know a financial leader wants and needs and (2) lack of common awareness and understanding in the financial industry.
The first day of the series is focused on reconsidering perspectives on the role and duties of the financial leader and what a CEO needs. The participants are also trained with tools that can immediately be used to improve financials in their organizations.
The second day of the series focuses on improving profit. Typically, financial professionals look to cutting costs to improve profit. You’ll learn other methods that will enable you to be more of a strategic leader in your organization.
The third day of the series focuses on the organization’s financing and cash flow needs. Learn how to manage your banking relationship to ensure cash flow needs are met in your company.
The fourth day of the series focuses on developing your skills as a financial leader. We will take you beyond the numbers and you will learn how to advance your career by building effective relationships.
There is also a lot of interaction with your coach tackling your real life challenges in accounting or operations.
