Finance for Non-Financial Managers

Finance for Non-Financial Managers

The finance report has just been delivered at your monthly management meeting – how are you and the rest of your management team feeling? Bamboozled? Squirming slightly uncomfortably? Not really understanding the terminology used and hoping no-one notices?

Wish you and your management team knew a bit more so you could all contribute more meaningfully and make better decisions based on the financial information provided?

Throughout my career from trainee accountant through to finance director, I’ve witnessed first hand senior professionals nodding and sometimes even saying the right words (“we need to grow the balance sheet…”) but not really understanding what they or their finance team are talking about. And, too often, people are nervous to ask questions for fear of looking silly or incompetent.

Finance is far too important for that! It is the lifeblood of your organisation and a lack of understanding of key financial information can have serious consequences for the health of your business. So many companies could be saved on a daily basis if they just understood some of the absolute basics such as why and how to monitor cash flow and what the profit and loss account and balance sheet are actually showing them. All departments need to understand these fundamentals, too. If all your departments are healthy and performing, it stands to reason that your company will be, too!

It has therefore become my mission to train the nation in these vital business finance skills. Speaking in plain English, our sessions are very participating in order that you can apply these new skills in your business immediately.

There is no need to bury your head in the sand. Come and join us on one of our engaging Finance For Non-Finance Managers training events around the UK or indeed on any of our fantastic finance courses. You’ll wonder why on earth you didn’t do it sooner!

Simply call us on 01423 861122 or email us at for further information. Details can be found on our website – simply click and book! Don’t see a date or location you like – please ASK! Want us to provide training at your company premises – no problem!

I look forward to welcoming you very soon.
