Business Breakfast Collective: 4 keys leavers to deliver value as a finance leader in the face of complexity and change


A finance leader’s biggest concern is not delivering value, being unseen, unheard and lost in the complex world. Steering a ship through volatility and change without having the right technology or people to deliver value continues to be the two challenges of today’s finance leaders. For you to be valued, seen and heard you must step up your capability to influence through people and have the right systems to deliver on the promise.
