Demonstrating attention to detail

Editorial by Matt Bud from the October 17, 2019 Newsletter

The world today is filled with more opportunities to communicate than ever before. From email at your desk station to email by smart phone, to texting, to telephone calls. Every time you reach out and touch someone, all they know about you is what you send them. As one of my friends used to say: “Don’t make your first impression your last.” I would add to this the idea that EVERY communication that emanates from you needs to be professional. There are no casual communications possible, even in person. Like the Citizens Band radio that preceded it, those who pour out endless streams of communication feel that it is somehow okay to take short cuts. I suppose this is okay, [ Read more… ]

The meeting will start at 6:00 P.M. The objective is to give each member an opportunity to continually hone their networking skills, meet their peers from various disciplines, share job leads, ideas, and develop networking opportunities.

Agenda:
Your Personal Brand…
Discover-Articulate-Market your “Special Sauce”
Program Overview

Today’s volatile business landscape is flooded with ‘voice-less’, undifferentiated, commoditized LinkedIn profiles, self-marketing collateral and self-serving elevator pitches. For many, this is an opportunity.

This post-recessionary marketplace demands that candidates ‘stand out’ authentically amid this clutter and noise. ‘Fake it ‘til you make it’ is not an option for most financial executives. For them, it’s superficial, misleading and lacks integrity.

Success and fulfillment belong to those who are open to the possibilities and adopt a proactive mindset. They uncover their Personal Brand - their unique promise of value. They ‘find their ‘voice’ - so they can be ‘heard’ above the crowd. They are able to motivate people of influence, i.e., referring parties and decision makers.

People with a well-developed Personal Brand elevate their pre-eminence with what is their ‘right fit’ audience, building credibility that will motivate their’ champions’ to advocate on their behalf.

About Charley Timmins:
Charley Timmins deals in one of life’s little mysteries – how to secure work that matters - so candidates achieve professional success, gain personal significance and have more fun.
His “Big Idea” – that only by finding our true voice and living our Authentic Self can we make the difference in the world. He knows that our hidden superpowers hold the key to our Authentic Self, which enables us to do well by doing good.


BE SURE TO BRING YOUR RESUME OR ONE PAGE MARKETING PIECE! As well as a name badge and name tent for the table.

To print a name tag or tent card: log on to the website, go to “Members Only.” Then scroll down to “Member Downloads.” From there scroll to “Other Useful Documents.” Then scroll down to “FENG-Name Badge” and/or “FENG- Meeting Tent.”
This is a great opportunity to meet new people, catch-up with old friends and discuss any issues you have on your mind.

Presentation:
Connecting the dots of Procure to Pay automation will explore best practices in the process of invoice verification and payment processing, two of the key steps that AP shops have a hand in during the Procure to Pay life cycle.

The top 3 challenges of AP teams face include the paper intensive environment leading to manual data entry and manual approval of Invoices. We’ll provide insight into performance metrics of best-in-class organizations compared to laggards as well as the different technologies company can explore – OCR, data capture, workflow and e-invoicing – and the value each can bring.

Once invoices approved are companies using the most efficient payment type? We’ll explore cost, security and value to organizations. We’ll wrap up with suggestions on establishing a plan of action and overcoming internal obstacles to help you succeed.
