Communications is critical in financial planning and analysis (FP&A). Simply put, to be an effective finance professional, you must be a good storyteller. There are five guiding principles FP&A professionals should follow to be effective communicators and tell a compelling story.
- Know your audience.
- Choose the right medium.
- Know your business.
- Be efficient.
- Build relationships.
To be truly effective storytellers, finance people must essentially translate numbers into a language that the whole business can understand—from the board to the C-suite, and across every department.
Having a reputation as a good communicator can only increase your value and your brand.
