From Excel to the NHL
By Blake Oliver • Issue #80 • View online
Happy Easter! Happy Passover!
This past week, Scott Foster played in his first NHL game as a goalie for the Chicago Blackhawks. That wouldn’t have been surprising except that he’s an accountant by day, and as the team’s “emergency goalie,” never expected to hit the ice.
On a more serious note, don’t miss this post from Aaron Harris about how the future role of the CFO resembles that of a data scientist more so than an accountant. 
If you’re an accountant who wants to be an effective leader, you need to understand the technology that’s rapidly changing how teams work. On April 19, I’ll be presenting a free webinar called “Technology Trends Accountants, Controllers, and CFOs Need to Know.” Join me and earn up to 1 CPE credit. 
For these stories and more of the best links I clicked on this past week, keep on scrolling.
