Futures in Finance: Improving Treasury-CFO Communication

  • By Staff Writers
  • Published: 11/21/2014
This month, Futures in Finance brings you our 2014 AFP Annual Conference roundup, beginning with a recap of a session on treasury/CFO communication at the CTC Executive Institute. A common problem for today's treasurer is an inability to communicate his or her value to the CFO, who oftentimes does not come from a treasury background. Dana Laidhold of The Carlyle Group and Sassan Parandeh, CTP, of ChildFund International presented attendees with tips on how treasurers can make themselves true advisers to their organizations. Next, we review the FP&A Roundtable. Financial planning and analysis professionals came up with five ways the FP&A function can organize itself for success, and discussed FP&A's role in the organization overall. Also this month, AFP's Brian Kalish, FP&A, recounts his visit to Southeast Asia, where many FP&A professionals are interested in earning the Corporate FP&A Professional Certification, and CFO Coach Cindy Kraft explains why treasury and finance jobseekers must make references a priority.
