The 13th annual Summit is a unique opportunity for 600 CFOs, financial executives and leading faculty from MIT to discuss high level strategies and practical insights. This year’s speakers include CFOs from IBM, Jawbone, Pandora, TripAdvisor and many more.

Ken Bettenhauser, President of HR Knowledge, will be a featured speaker on the panel titled “Automating Human Capital.” To be successful, CFOs and other financial leaders need to better understand the human capital challenges organizations are facing today, and how financial leaders can help overcome them. “I am both honored and excited to share how new technology developments can reduce administrative burdens for HR staff so they can focus instead on strategic aspects of human capital. Financial leaders need to support these initiatives to achieve success for their organizations,” says Bettenhauser.

“The role of the CFO requires financial expertise as well as business innovation skills,” said Jeremy Seidman, Co-Chair of the MIT Sloan CFO Summit.  “We’re very excited with our 2015 speaker line-up of CFOs who demonstrate the best in integration of knowledge and creativity.”
