Beyond Eeyore

Beyond Eeyore

By Jonathan Taylor , April 2013

Jonathan's research explores how charity finance directors can grow their influence. He draws on his own experience to research ways in which charity finance directors can increase their influence. The resulting report is an insightful and entertaining reflection on what this crucial role can add to leadership in the social sector.

"Extremely impressive, pertinent and well written, it should be required reading for all financial directors – and for CEOs!”  
Martin Edwards
Chief Executive, Julia’s House

“This report pulls out some of the key strengths finance directors should seek to nurture as they develop their career - bravery, sympathy and communications skills – that will ultimately raise their value and credibility among their senior peers.”
Caron Bradshaw
CEO, Charity Finance Group

“Really interesting and valuable insights. As well as underlining for me the unique viewpoint that a finance director brings to the senior management team, ‘Beyond Eeyore’ got me thinking about my own role on the SMT, and the perspective and temperamental inclinations that I bring.”
Sue Wixley
Communications Director, New Philanthropy Capital
