EquityFD was delighted to host a webinar for International Women’s Day 2023 reaching out the ICAEW Women in Finance network and to EquityFD’s Women’s Network.
An hour went by far too quickly – not even any chance for questions . We could really have done with two hours! We heard from 4 amazing women CFO's who gave some great tips and advice about their journeys to the top job .
- Get a Mentor!
- Get a Network!
- Be curious about the business -develop a T shaped, commercial brain
- Don’t self sabotage or judge others
- See yourself on a journey where you are either ‘winning or learning’
- ‘Bad news doesn’t get better with time’ – communication and relationship skills are key!
- Differences of opinion are fine – it’s what you are being paid for as CFO – it’s just about how you position it!
- Rely on your training
- Take finance to the centre don’t pigeon hole it …
There is so much to learn – thank you to the four amazing women who took part, Dianne, Julie, Lauren and Anita.
