It will contribute to improved decision making in your organisation and help to drive financial health, performance and success. It will also ensure that the finance team are adding value rather than cost.This will be an energetic, engaging and highly practical one-day workshop on how to powerfully present and cleverly communicate financial information effectively and with impact both verbally and in writing.
