Thought for the day: finance and strategy

Many members of the boards of not-for-profit organisations seem to turn off when finance is mentioned. I can remember doing governor training at a college when a governor arrived late and said: “Oh, it’s finance training? If I’d known I would not have turned up”.

I have come across some wise words from Emmanual Faber (CFO at Danone) who noted:

Finance without strategy is just numbers, and strategy without finance is just dreaming.
