Finance for Non-Financial Managers Course (One Day)
Print this page
The workplace is an ever evolving environment and today Non Financial Managers are required to hold the knowledge of key financial concepts. This has come about from the necessity to create synergy between the finance department and non finance departments so shared business objectives and drivers can be communicated effectively.
This programme is designed for non financial managers who are not accountants but have a need to have an understanding of how finance works.
It demystifies finance and the finance department by explaining simply and clearly what the key financial statements mean, how they work and relate to each other and how the actions of managers affect them and the business.
The course will empower you with the knowledge required to present reports to boards or committees using the correct financial terminology

Comments from our clients:
I thought the content & pace was very good and it was extremely useful to be able to talk through real world examples. You did a great job of making the topic interesting and the discussions about your experiences were very valuable. I also enjoyed running through the exercises. Well done!
Thoroughly enjoyed the course - trainer very patient and encouraging
Just wanted to say thank you for such an excellent course the other day – pitched at the right level and started some genuine conversations about better financial management within the company and how people can impact our business positively. I’ve heard great feedback that you presented in a way that wasn’t patronising but was informative and also mindful of the fear factor with Finance so thank you for that too. I certainly enjoyed the course and a good refresh on my MBA ;-)
