Kevin Belli thinks that great data is only great when it adds value, improves decision-making and resource prioritization, and enhances an organization’s financial health. The ability to promote the FP&A discipline and partner with internal customers are among a host of skills that are key to the development of that next finance rockstar.

In this edition of the AFP Conversations Podcast, Kevin Belli SVP, Financial Planning + Analysis at AARP joins AFP’s Director of FP&A Practice, Bryan Lapidus, FPAC to talk about the key differentiators that set the finance rockstars apart. As technology advances, everyone from the CFO to first-year financial analysts and treasury specialists has had to keep pace with that change.

Kevin and Bryan discuss how the role of finance professional is changing the importance of data literacy. Finance teams must not only leverage complex data sets but—more importantly—demonstrate the necessary skills to transform this data into meaningful and strategic guidance for the organization.
