You want to make your organization better, right? Already you’re on a constant quest to learn industry best practices and tried-and-true techniques. That’s why we’re here to help by bringing you an FP&A expert talk show called Collectiv Conversations.

In Collectiv Conversations, our Senior FP&A Consultant Chris Ortega chats with FP&A experts from various industries from all over the world. These industry experts share their best insights for building high-performing FP&A teams and highly effective processes.

Microsoft’s Jesse Todd, who is the Group Finance Manager for the Finance Data & Experiences Team, is kicking off Collectiv Conversations. To give you an idea of what to expect with the upcoming video series, here are some motivational thoughts from Jesse…

“The reason why I get so excited about doing digital transformation and freeing up time—part of that is doing better with your business partner. But a huge part of it is so that you can actually go home…you can be home when you’re home and be with the people that are most important to you.

That is a huge motivation for me to be pushing the envelope of what we can be doing in finance. It’s about having an impact across your whole life.”

Collectiv Conversations is coming to YouTube, launching officially in February. Remember to subscribe to the Collectiv YouTube channel so you don’t miss out on Collectiv Conversations and our many other videos covering tutorials, best practices, and Microsoft Power Platform feature releases.
