Nicolas Boucher joins Kevin Appleby on the GrowCFO show and shares his experience implementing AI in finance. Nicolas teaches people how to get started with AI in finance, and this is the focus of the conversation. He discussed many ways of using ChatGPT as an assistant rather than just a search engine. Nicolas discussed how to structure prompts to get the most value from ChatGPT, and gave some great examples, such as drafting letters, writing procedures, and generating training content. ChatGPT can also be used for data analysis, problem solving, and exploring automation opportunities using Python.
Kevin and Nicolas discussed the rise of AI-powered assistants like Copilot, more natural language interactions, and increased automation of finance tasks. They emphasized experimenting with AI tools, identifying automatable tasks, and staying up-to-date on new capabilities through communities and courses.
Nicolas has 15 years of experience working in finance, first as an auditor at PwC and then at a large French multinational company, Thales, similar to Boeing. He is passionate about helping people grow both personally and professionally. This led him to coaching and training others throughout his career. He now runs his own coaching and training business. Nicolas started sharing his insights on LinkedIn which helped grow his audience and career. He now works as a trainer and consultant focused on teaching AI and ChatGPT for finance professionals. His goal is to help as many people as possible learn how to implement useful AI tools in their work. He has developed practical and advanced courses on the topic.
