giphyWe just wrapped up our last day of Vena Nation week and what a great week we had! We want to thank everyone for their hard work and amazing contributions to make Vena Nation week such a great experience.

Today we had Mark Donovan, President of Kansas City Chiefs, sit down with Vena CEO Hunter Madeley to talk about building winning teams. We also had the The Beyond FP&A Panel, which was CPE/CPD accredited for all those in attendance. That panel focused on how Capstone Infrastructure, the Arizona Cardinals and Vena’s finance pros standardized processes, systems and reporting to serve as strategic business partners. Last but certainly not least, we had Liam Bastick (of SumProduct) walk us through Effective Data Storytelling in Excel.

Sadly this is our last day, but if you missed it (or anything else during the week), be sure to check out Plan To Grow in the coming weeks for any missed sessions. Here are  our highlights from day four.
