I’m sure this is a theme I will keep returning to, but I seem to be spending more and more time talking about people rather than money. Financial conversations about issues like governance, strategy, investment, and outcomes all come back to the people in charge, and how they are directing their own, and their colleagues, in the furtherance of the businesses primary objectives.
And yet it’s so easy to lose sight of what your business is trying to do. Having an objective point of view is easy when (like me) you are “on the outside looking in”. But it’s a point of view all businesses need to have.
