Gracias por tomarte el tiempo para leer mi biografía, lo cual demuestra tu interés en el maravilloso mundo de las finanzas y la contabilidad de costes.

Permíteme una breve introducción: He trabajado como CFO y controller durante mucho tiempo, y soy apasionado de la técnica financiera y de costes. Disfruto analizando procesos, y esta pasión me ha llevado a impartir clases en distintas universidades, donde he aprendido tanto de mis alumnos como espero que ellos hayan aprendido algo de mí.

Una pregunta que a menudo me hacen es sobre los sectores en los que he trabajado. Para mí, el desafío no es en qué sectores he trabajado, sino cuántos me faltan por explorar y aprender.
Como apasionado de las finanzas, el control de gestión y los costes, actualmente me encuentro inmerso en el mundo de Dynamics, lo cual representa toda una aventura.

Si estás buscando una sesión que combine visión de negocio aplicada a Dynamics y que, en algún momento, desafíe tus habilidades con cálculos, no lo pienses más, no vengas a mi sesión, o sí.
