NEW YORK, NY, August 10, 2009 - CFO Publishing today announced the launch of CFO Master Class, a paid series of educational Webcasts available through, featuring the most-highly-rated speakers from past CFO Conferences.

The CFO Master Class offers finance executives the opportunity to earn CPE credits for one-hour courses. These Webcasts cover the newest techniques in budgeting, planning, risk management, and other core responsibilities of the finance team. Presenters are chosen by the CFO editorial team based on their expertise in the subject matter and peer review. Over 400 executives have participated in the monthly Webcasts to-date.

“Over the years, certain speakers consistently receive the highest marks from our conference attendees,” said Julia Homer, SVP Content for CFO Publishing and founding editor of CFO magazine. “We wanted to offer the insights of these well-known thought leaders to a broader audience.” Lori Calabro, editorial director of CFO Conferences, adds, “CFO Conferences has been named one of the Top Ten Podiums by Burson-Marstellar. We are thrilled that we can now bring some of this content to the desktop and expand our content throughout the year.”

Each session provides practical guidance on how to improve performance in a particular function and how to measure the impact of those improvements. Attendees receive tools and other takeaways to help them share what they learn with other members of their departments. Attendees earn one CPE credit per webcast.
