Yes, having a resume is important. So is a LinkedIn profile. I’ve blogged previously about whether a CFO needs a resume, or a LinkedIn Profile is enough.
But this is not what I’m recommending today.
I recently spoke with a CFO who is in process of interviewing for his next Chief Financial Officer role, and he was asked if he had Video of his presentations.
Yes, the CEO wanted to know how good a presenter he was, and wanted to see him in action.
Do you have videos of presentations you’ve made as CFO?
- If you don’t, I recommend arranging to get your next presentations recorded.
- If you do have video, and you think you could do a better job at presenting, consider getting presentation coaching.
Your next CFO role might depend on it.
