Hands up – who has that ‘back to school’ feeling this week?! It’s wonderful, isn’t it? That great feeling of renewed determination and enthusiasm flooding through you to be the best you can be and to perform to the very best of your abilities.
If you could learn one thing this Autumn that would make a real difference to how you perform in your current role or help you achieve the role you aspire to be successfully promoted to, what would that be? Would learning some key business finance skills make you stand out as a truly skilled and capable manager and catapult your promotional prospects?
Very often, for non-financial managers, finance is a topic that can be considered scary, technical, daunting or dull (or all of the above!). On the contrary, finance is dynamic, exciting, not as difficult as you might think and, like it or not, it is the language of business. Some basic financial knowledge and skills can mean the difference between a company thriving and achieving its growth ambitions or, at worst, going under. It’s far too important a subject to simply bury your head in the sand and hope for the best.
Use this fabulous ‘back to school’ feeling and make this the year you really get to understand the basic financial terms and concepts, feel able to question the finance report during your management meetings, get to grips with what the key financial statements are telling you and truly feel able to contribute to improving the financial performance of your department and organisation. You will be amazed at how much you can learn in one day – our other delegates have been!
Our flagship ‘Finance for Non-Financial Managers’ course is a practical, engaging and interactive one-day event with skills that you can implement immediately back in the workplace – and be buzzing to do so!
We can also come to you and train your management team in these vital business skills.
