ChatGPT, Gemini and other generative IT are changing the way people interact and do business. But many finance professionals don’t know how to take the first step into gaining value from these tools. That’s all about to change for you with this unmissable ChatGPT Masterclass for Finance Professionals, brought to you by CFO South Africa, and hosted by Maarten de Borst, global AI and finance guru.

In this course, you will learn how you can summarise text files, talk to PDFs, analyse complex data sets, understand the risks of cybercrime, and identify how generative AI can revolutionise your finance processes. With these skills under your belt, you will speed up reporting, free up vital human skills to do more value-adding work and boost your bottom line!
