CFO South Africa brings global ChatGPT and finance guru Maarten de Borst to SA for an exclusive masterclass


At the ChatGPT for Finance Professionals Masterclass, attendees will get to grips with how to harness generative AI and revolutionise the finance function in their organisations.

CFO South Africa is proud to announce global AI and finance guru Maarten de Borst as the host of the upcoming ChatGPT Masterclass for finance professionals, taking place on 17 April in Melrose Arch.

Maarten is a strategy consultant at Numbers, a boutique technology consulting firm in Amsterdam. He's the author of three books, a public speaker and technology advisor to the Amsterdam Police. Maarten has a background in Economics and Finance.

His essential one-day course, which costs only R5 250, is designed to equip finance executives and their teams with the knowledge and skills they need to leverage generative AI effectively.

“The course has sold out at every event in Europe since its launch in mid-2023 and has been created especially for finance professionals,” says executive community director Georgina Guedes, who has been engaging with the CFO South Africa community as they share their collective challenges when it comes to AI.

Maarten will give attendees valuable insight into large language models (LLMs), teach them how to recognise the dangers that come with AI, such as fraud and cybercrime, as well as help them identify and explore the opportunities AI offers to the broader industry.

“Whether you’re a finance professional who wants to increase efficiency and spend more time on strategic tasks, a finance manager or controller who wants to strengthen your analytical skills, a risk manager who wants to better manage risks, or an analyst who wants to make better predictions, Maarten will have important insights for you!”

Finance executives workshop

An additional workshop, with limited numbers, for finance executives, is taking place on 16 April.

CFOs and finance executives will get the exclusive opportunity to interact with Maarten more personally during the course. “The course has been created especially with use cases and hands-on tasks for finance executives, and will take you from ‘playing around with it’ to becoming an expert user,” Georgina explains.
