COURSE AIMS

Take the fear out of finance and give yourself the confidence to understand financial matters as they relate to your business. This very practical course is specifically designed for people with little or no existing financial knowledge, and the content you learn will have immediate relevance to your business.

TARGET AUDIENCE

Managers who need to gain a better understanding of the financial implications of their day to day decisions. This training course is designed for management level delegates who do not have a financial background but need a better understanding of business and/or organisational finance matters.

Do you have a management role but limited awareness of the financial implications of what happens in the company?

If you are familiar with the financial aspects of your day-to-day business, you will be far more effective in your job, and by attending this course, you will obtain the necessary understanding.


You will appreciate the likely financial effects of proposed changes or variable levels of performance, enhancing your decision making and simplifying the roles of other management functions.

You will learn technical terms and what they mean, as well as gaining a practical insight into how financial principles apply to business.

The result ? You will add a new and essential dimension to your decision making.
