Reinventing the Finance Role
When everything you must accomplish seems overwhelming, it is often hard to see the big picture. Step back and understand your role as others do. Your board, CEO, peers and the rest of the organization are customers for the information you create. Understanding their perspective will change how you gather, process and distribute information. It will change your focus from dealing with the past to collaborating with others to make the future happen. As a result, you will work more efficiently and will be far more valued. This session will help stimulate your way of thinking about your own position and the department you run.
