About this Talk

If you're a finance pro looking to team up better with colleagues in other departments like the C-suite or marketing, check out this panel. Our panellists will share tips on understanding what those non-finance folks need and how to explain finance in a way that clicks for them - eventually reducing the volume of questions directed to the finance team!

We've lined up a great panel:

Before the session, a lot of you probably feel like there's a disconnect - the finance team isn't sure how to make financial info digestible for others, while getting bombarded with basic questions that eat up your time for bigger things. But after this panel, you'll see how some cross-team collaboration can achieve wider company goals instead of people working in silos. You'll be more confident translating financial concepts and processes so other teams aren't lost, taking some of that Q&A workload off finance's plate. The main takeaway? Working hand-in-hand with the whole organisation makes everyone's job easier.
