The accounting and finance people podcast is here. It dives into the revolution of technology, and how it is changing the industry. Our host Chris Argent, MD and head of community at Generation CFO, aims to bring you the latest tips, trends and tools from the geekier side of accounting and finance.
I am joined by Simon Cole to talk about his finance career journey and the trends around his move to start up!
Do not isolate yourself, go out, talk to the people and understand how the business works!
Talking about data and automation, Simon points out that data is always going somewhere, and finance needs to be collecting it and turning it into information for the rest of the business to use.
As a finance professional, one should understand the marketing, sales team, and the different functions of the company. New talents, ideas, and technology are great, as long as the leadership knows how to exploit it.
Listen as Simon and I talk about how CFOs drive the vision of the business, startups and the rise of millennial’s.
