Gerald Hector Part 2 — The power of storytelling in driving participation across the institution

Episode Summary

Gerald Hector is Vice President for Finance and Administration at Ithaca College. In [part one of our conversation last week](http://teibelinc.com/podcast/148), Gerald shared his insights on the importance of the CBO-CIO relationship, and we expected that to be the extent of our conversation. Then he surprised us with a fantastic pivot. In part two, we take on the power of storytelling in moving the institutional mission forward. From using metaphor to explain complex financial subjects, to his "Dollars & $ence" meetings, now central to his mission around campus financial leadership, Gerald's input is a valuable perspective far beyond his role as a technical finance leader. **About Gerald Hector** Gerald Hector serves as chief financial officer with administrative oversight to the offices of Auxiliary Services, Digital Instruction and Information Services, Facilities, and Business and Finance, as well as providing support and direction for all of the College's financial endeavors. **Links & Notes** - [Enlightening IT](http://www.nacubo.org/Business_Officer_Magazine/Magazine_Archives/March_2016/Enlightening_IT.html "Enlightening IT — NACUBO Business Officer Magazine") — NACUBO Business Officer Magazine - [Navigating the New Normal White Paper](http://www.southerneducation.org/NavigatingNewNormal.aspx "Navigating the New Normal White Paper — Southern Education Foundation") — Southern Education Foundation - [Gerald Hector Series at The HBCU Nation](https://soundcloud.com/thehbcunation/sets/gerald-hector "Gerald Hector Series at The HBCU Nation — SoundCloud") — SoundCloud
