Adaptive Financial Communication Lessons: What Nature Tells Us about Sharing Resources

March 11, 2020 @ 4:30 pm


Using an ecological lens, this presentation can help you look at finance from different perspectives. If you are involved in money matters at any level, you will come away with new insights on the communication of financial issues. If you are interested in the concept of sustainability and cross-department communication, this is a presentation for you.

Who is talking about money at your company or organization? Who isn’t? Who should be? And how are they talking about it? Is discourse around finances a strength or a weakness? Maybe you’re a project manager overseeing a production budget and want to advocate for more resources for a book project. Perhaps you work in operations and want to inspire creative solutions to a financial challenge. Maybe you are a staffer who wants better tools for advocating for yourself and your colleagues when it comes to company resources. Or perhaps you’re a department manager or director who has to share financial information with your team, whether the news is good or bad.

No matter your role, you are a part of the business culture (ecosystem) of your company. Join us at MBPR’s March luncheon, where Allie Moen Wagstrom (she/her/hers) will discuss the ever-important soft skills of adaptive financial leadership, providing insights from nature that will spur your creativity in approaching financial issues. Whether you need to take action on a budget problem or generate more communication between your departments, Allie will provide steps to creating a more inclusive approach to finance.
