I Was a Guest on The CFO 4.0 Podcast

I was excited to be invited onto the CFO 4.0 podcast, with the incredible host Hannah Munro, to dive deep into the future of finance and we covered so much in a short space of time.

Hannah and I unpack the transformative journey that lies ahead for the finance industry in the next five years. We explore the vital role of soft skills, leadership, and process engineering, providing actionable tips to help finance professionals and teams stay one step ahead of the game. During our conversation, we uncover the finance team’s unique position bridging the gap between data science and the wider business world. I emphasise the power of finance teams to translate complex data insights into tangible strategies that drive success.

But that’s not all! I also unveil the three pillars of finance evolution: transformation roles, data analytics, and true business partnering. Together, we unravel the significance of investing in transformation-specific roles, the growth of data analytics tools, and the evolving role of a finance business partner compared to a traditional accountant.
