Course description

Finance for Non-Finance Managers Course

This two day course aims to equip staff with the confidence to communicate with both colleagues and senior management about business accounting and finance related issues, even if they lack confidence in their mathematical ability. It will do this by firstly providing the participant with a significant amount of knowledge and understanding of financial terminology being used today.

Secondly, it will remove the mystique of financial statements through case studies and examples discussed within the group. The course will help to develop a clear understanding and confidence of applying this knowledge to both generate, and question, financial data. It is intended to have a direct impact on the organisation’s performance by making staff more cost and profit aware.

The course will help build an understanding of how to use financial information to support and develop your business area; where you can add value to the financials being created or interpreted; and how to understand the architecture of each set of information and how these can be applied to your business area.
