Finance is no longer a cost center! It's rather a profit driver for companies who understand what modern finance means.

My name is Bright Obeng and I am the host of the Key Figures Podcast.

In my finance career of almost 15 years, I worked from accounting, through auditing till controlling, in many capacities. Being a consultant at certain part of my career allowed me to work in many companies and really understand the power of finance.

There is however an entrepreneur in me, next to being a finance professional. I found my passion in finance recruitment where I can help finance leaders, across various industries, attract the finest and brightest minds in their teams. Having a real experience in finance management and leveraging on that knowlegde to help companies grow has allowed me to build strong relationships within the Belgian finance market.

In this podcast, we dive into the key figures and key processes needed to make finance become a real profit driver instead of a cost center.

Every Wednesday afternoon, I will sit down with a key figure within Finance to have an honest conversation on their key figures, key processes and how they are adding value through finance to their companies.
This podcast will be in English or Dutch.
