Tage C. Tracy has helped CFOs and Decision makers at executive level with guidance and support with raising debt and equity capital, completing complex financial analysis, supporting risk management assessments, guiding accounting system designs and structuring, and being an integral part of the strategic business planning management functions for more than 25 years.
Tage is also the lead or coauthor of seven books, including this most recent title, Business Financial Information Secrets, so he will be able to share a wealth of information on a difficult but very important topic.
In this episode I speak with Tage about his latest book “Business Financial Information Secrets: How a Business Produces and Utilizes Critical Financial Information”, his career and why even if accounting might not be sexy, you really need to understand the base concepts.
I hope you enjoy this conversation with Tage C. Tracy!
