Dear CFO Moves reader,
Here are some snippets Christine shared with me on the following topics:
The formula for a great company:
1) Serves a large market.
2) Creates a useful and differentiated product.
3) Has a really well-rounded CEO.
Networking: Successful networking means making lifelong friends and giving back.
Successful Female CFOs: Executives need to make their career a priority. There is no such thing as balance. It’s a compromise. It’s what you choose to do with your life.
Females on Boards: Recruit your board by individual, irrespective of race, sex, country of origin. Hire the best for the board. Period.
Managing your Board: Over-communication and transparency creates trust.
The Best CEOs for CFOs: Confident CEOs are able to share their powerbase with the CFO and treat them as a trusted partner.
Advice to up-and-coming female CFOs: Be absolutely fearless. Brainstorm with your other executives, and shut up and listen – you will learn a lot.
If you know of a CFO worthy to be profiled, please contact me.
See you again on Monday,
