Topic: Doing More With Less: The New Normal for the Finance Professional
The global recession of 2008 and a jobless recovery mean we all have to do more with less. Cutting costs and managing lean budgets is an ongoing process. Skills in finance and accounting alone are insufficient to get the job done. From communications to negotiations to linking the reductions to a strategic vision – finance professionals now have to do more with less.
Dean Ramchand will share strategies that you can use to rise to this challenge and deliver to this opportunity.
