Key Points From Craig Foster’s "The Last Great Sporting Frontier”

Tuesday, June 19, 2018

With the FIFA World Cup now underway, we’ve been reflecting on some of the key messages from Craig Foster’s recent Moir Group Event. Craig spoke on long term planning, leadership and culture, as well as the passion required to lead a team to the World Cup. Here are some of my key take aways:

  • Literacy – the first battle was generating an interest in soccer in an otherwise sporting obsessed nation. While it is elsewhere referred to as the World’s Game, it took a while for soccer to find a foothold in Australia. One key battle for the long term plan of the game was to raise "soccer literacy" across the whole country to a higher level. Likewise, when you think about the long term plan of your company or team, focus on building a higher level of understanding across the whole, and not just at an individual level.
  • Redouble your efforts – resilience is always key; don’t give up and keep moving forward. “Fail, then learn and do it better. And then fail again, and learn to do it better”
  • Be clear on your values – you have to be clear on who you are and what your goals and values are. For a culture to develop that you are proud of and that you want to be a part of, you have to actively create it. “Don’t try and play a game that isn’t yours.”
  • Passion. Passion drives this game, but it has to drive your team too. As a leader, you are responsible for inspiring the passion in your team.
  • Analyse what you have to work with before coming up with a plan
  • Consistency – once you have you values, stick to them, and keep sticking to them. To create a culture that works, consistency is key.
  • As a leader, your ability to be proud of your work and your goals inspires others to follow suit and take pride as well.
  • Diversity – a more diverse team is a better team; a more diverse company is a better company.
  • Best practice example – the Matildas. They work as a team and are a great example of an equality driven culture.

As always, if we can assist with any accounting/finance recruitment needs in your business on either a temporary or a permanent basis we would be delighted to do so. We cover all roles from junior entry roles up to Group CFO.

Key Points From Andrew Cartledge's The Journey to CFO - How to Gain the Right Experience

Thursday, March 29, 2018

Moir Group hosted Andrew Cartledge the CFO of Wise Tech Global at our first Emerging Leaders event for 2018. He spoke about his journey to CFO - and how to gain the right experience. Here are some of my key takeaways from his presentation:

  • Have a concise clear message when talking to you manager/s (only a dozen bullet points). He learnt this in the global audit division and it has been key ever since in his roles.
  • Things get thrown at you, sit down and come up with a plan. Talk to people you know and get their advice on a solution. Know when to put up your hand and ask for help – could be internally or externally.
  • He took a side step from a divisional CFO role into a financial planning and analysis role in a bigger business. It gave him access to the CFO and the headquarters. Take those kinds of risks and recognise them for what they are - opportunities. Many of Andrew's roles were brand new and didn’t exist previously.
  • If you get the chance to get into a large scale financial planning and analysis role, take it. Andrew learnt the most in this role technically, commercially and communications wise.
  • As a manager - trust your team and “get out of the way”. Give them your views and then guide them. He grew the most when he “got out of the way”. He developed, and his team developed.
  • You must confront the challenges in your career. Need to trust senior people, that they have your best interests at heart.
  • Ask where the business is going to grow in the medium term. What role will you play in this over the medium term.
  • Be willing to take a step, use judgment, but there is some luck in it.
  • Be flexible and inquisitive. Andrew went on a fixed term assignment overseas. You get to build networks locally and overseas and develop a global network of people filled with different backgrounds and experiences.
  • Don’t ever stop learning. There are always new opportunities to develop new skills - take on the challenge. 

We host these Emerging Leaders events once a quarter, so please keep an eye on our event's page here if you are interested in attending the next one.
