Tim Zue, EVP & CFO, Boston Red Sox will present live direct from historical Fenway Park's EMC Club. The Red Sox have won four World Series championships since 2004 but the team is a mid-sized business that must create a winning experience with every fan interaction. Tim Zue will share the winning playbook the Red Sox organization has created to leverage data & analytics and translate information into key insights that allow the club to take informed risks and make winning plays to keep their fans coming back.
This is a chance to connect alongside the entire CFOLC community across North America for this live broadcast. There will be a Q&A session at the end where we welcome your questions/comments.
A special thank you to Host Analytics, this event's exclusive sponsor.
