If you like HBR, you'll like Spend Culture
I finally found a finance podcast that is insightful and interesting. I like the variety of guests they have on the show. They share their success stories of driving change in their companies and how they became leaders in finance. Looking forward to the next episode!
A new take on an old industry
This podcast provides an interview style approach with some incredible leaders from finance giants around the world. It is so different from typical finance/procurement related podcasts with a fresh spin on what some may see as dry topics. I love the laid back approach the hosts take with their interviews and the interactions with guests always feel so genuine and human. I can't wait to see where this goes!
Spend management is something that I see most companies overlook, I think that if people are able to hear other companies/people talking about their own stories it will start to resonate. Great ideal!
