This is a technical architectural blog on the best system archicture for future of finance. It has to be Agile and yes, have a bit of Excel mixed in the middle.
I often get direct messages on LinkedIn from people asking me for either a job, career advice or helping them understand financial modelling and how do they apply for jobs in Australia, thinking Australia is immune to accountants losing jobs or unable to get them.
I wrote this blog to help the many that are lost in this fast evolving work force.
I became an accountant thinking I would have a job for life. All companies need one, so safe..right?
Many accountants are struggling to find jobs equivalent to their years of experience, if at all, in some ever increasing examples.
What I feared is now becoming fast a reality.
What I feared too for many years was my father's fight for life with cancer. He survived 32 years fighting until he lost his battle recently.
His legacy was helping many people, including strangers, I hope with this post you too learn from an amazingly positive thinking individual.
I see lots of linkages in what he was able to navigate, similar to many accountants facing challenging times of survival.
I hope too that the many cancer fighters and their families and friends learn too how our minds and outlook has such a big part to play in living.
This Blog post is intended to provide future finance professionals with some insight in terms of developing a VCFO business.
Having evolved my CFO role into a VCFO there were many things I learnt and also would have changed had I known better.
Hopefully my mistakes don't need to be repeated by others.
This blog post explores the first major wave of spreadsheet innovation and compares it to Airbnb.
There are a lot of benefits from the sharing economy but when it comes to spreadsheets sharing content is not only foreign but also risky.
But now it is both possible and lower risk resulting in new opportunities.
NEED HELP searching for the best advisory tool in the market.
After meeting over 50 finance professionals and accountants last week, it remains absolutely clear to me that, the majority of people have no idea which rabbit hole of technology to go down to assess the best advisory tools.
So, I decided to write this post and create a poll.
I would like the customers to talk. Knowledge shared is extremely powerful and time saving for us all!
