    Clint Parker, Principal Pre-Sales Engineer, Oracle NetSuite | Rami Ali, Product, Planning & Budgeting, Oracle NetSuite
    The Finance Leaders Series are NetSuite's top-rated and most popular webinars around Finance.

    In this last episode, we look at how to efficiently streamline your planning and budgeting.

    If you’re still using spreadsheets for budgeting, it’s probably NOT because you think these are the best tools for the job, but rather because it was the best solution at the time or you hadn’t had the chance to consider an alternative. Using manual processes and spreadsheets as a budgeting tool is error-prone and creates challenges for organizations.

    In this webinar you will learn how to:
    - Gain greater control and visibility over your budgets.
    - Reduce your budgeting cycle times.
    - Streamline and automate data collection.
    - Increase collaboration with business stakeholders.

  • [Ep.1] Finance Leaders Series: Taking Finance into the Future Aug 10 2021 9:00 am UTC 61 mins
    Peter Simons, Development & Innovation Specialist, CIMA | Nina Baikoro, Senior Solution Consultant, Oracle NetSuite
    The Finance Leaders Series are NetSuite's top-rated and most popular webinars around Finance.

    In this first episode, we look at how operating as a highly effective CFO requires a more business-wide leadership role.

    In addition to maintaining a set of basic habits that make them and their organisations far more adaptable to the pace of digital disruption, the CFO must also add new tools to their belt. Fortunately, none of these habits are too far outside their traditional area of expertise. Rather, they extend and contemporise existing competencies and talents which all effective CFOs should already share.

    We will answer in this webinar:
    - What are the most common habits of highly effective CFOs
    - What role-defining trends are shaping the future of the finance function
    - How you can leverage digital technology to improve your effectiveness as a CFO

  • How To Deliver the Perfect Pitch Recorded: Jul 15 2021 59 mins
    Elizabeth Yin, Co-Founder & General Partner, Hustle Fund | Eric Bahn, Co-Founder & General Partner
    As a founder/small business, going through the fundraising process can be incredibly frustrating. It takes an amazing amount of time and effort to convince an investor to agree to talk to you. And then, once you pitch your company, sometimes the investor never gets back to you. Or if they do get back to you, oftentimes their rejection doesn't explain WHY they're not interested.

    All this can leave an entrepreneur feeling frustrated, dejected, and unsure of what they can do to improve in the future.

    In this webinar, three real-life founders pitch two real-life investors. After each pitch, the investors give direct, undiluted feedback about their concerns about the company and recommendations on the pitch.

    You will learn:
    - Best practices for pitching to VCs
    - Why VCs decide not to invest in a company

    - Nydia Simoneme - Blactina Media (media company)
    - Ruchir Shah - SkillCat (marketplace company)

  • Continuous Accounting: A Smart Approach to Better, Faster Decision-Making Recorded: Jun 17 2021 60 mins
    Joanna Malvern, Editor in Chief, ACCA | Thomas Sutter, Finance Director, Oracle NetSuite
    For years, accounting teams have operated like assembly lines - each team member having specific responsibilities for the monthly close, and a company could get the final product — financial results — only at the end of the line.

    The problem is, by the time the finance team finishes the process, potentially weeks after the numbers come in, the information is outdated and of minimal value to decision-makers. It’s a snapshot of the company’s past rather than a window into its future. There’s also little time to analyse results from the previous month before the focus turns to closing the books for the current month.

    The solution? A continuous accounting approach that seeks to balance accounting workloads and provide instant information, replacing month- or quarter-end deadlines with more frequent completion of close-related tasks.

    In partnership with ACCA, you will learn in this webinar:
    - The principles and benefits of continuous accounting
    - How to enable your team to better balance workloads
    - Replace month or quarter end deadlines with more frequent completion of close-related tasks
