If you are a decision maker - whether you're an ambitious CEO, visionary chairperson, or company owner seeking profitable growth - this newsletter is tailor-made for you. Welcome to "AI for Decision Makers," where we navigate the vast landscape of artificial intelligence and its impact on businesses like yours. Spoiler alert: AI has an impact on every industry sector, and we'll explore its implications and applications across the board.

AI, a term on everyone's lips, holds immense power and potential. However, amidst the buzz, uncertainty often looms over decision makers like yourself. Questions arise: Is AI inherently good or bad? Should I incorporate AI into my company? Can I avoid AI altogether? And if I decide to embark on this journey, where do I begin? More importantly, what tangible benefits can AI bring to my organization?

At its core, AI is a powerful tool that, when leveraged strategically, can drive profitable growth. This newsletter aims to address the unique combination of AI and profitability, empowering decision makers to make informed choices that will shape the future of their companies.

Now, you might be wondering, why is it necessary and urgent to understand AI even if you operate in a non-technical field, such as healthcare, retail, or banking? The answer lies in the evolving role of CEOs. In the next three years, the future CEO will transform into the visionary technology architect of the company. This shift in responsibilities may seem daunting, particularly for those who don't come from a tech or digital background. However, with the right knowledge and guidance, this goal can be within reach.

But first of all, allow me to introduce myself. With over two decades of experience at the forefront of disruptive software technologies, I have witnessed firsthand the transformative power of AI. My journey in the realm of artificial intelligence began in 1996 when the concept was still in its infancy. As computational power evolved, enabling large-scale AI-based products, my team and I successfully launched our first AI product in 2015.

Throughout my career, I transitioned from being a software developer to assuming roles as a Group CTO and Group CEO. This journey provided me with a deep understanding of the challenges that tech and digital companies face at every level. I have honed my ability to fuse technology with digital strategy, including leveraging AI, to drive substantial and sustainable growth for companies.

In each edition of this newsletter, we will delve into the multifaceted aspects of AI, exploring its applications, best practices, and potential pitfalls. We will shed light on real-world examples and success stories, helping you envision the possibilities and gain confidence in embracing AI as a strategic asset.

To make the most of this resource, we encourage you to engage with the content. Like, comment, subscribe, and share this newsletter with your fellow decision makers. Together, we can forge a community of leaders empowered with the knowledge to navigate the ever-changing landscape of AI and drive transformative growth.

Thank you for joining me on this exciting journey. Stay tuned for my next edition, where I will uncover the foundational elements required to kickstart your AI initiatives.
