Course Description

Finance For Non-Financial Managers - Professional Development by Training Works

Managers need to understand a wide range of financial information in order to be effective in their roles. You may be expected to communicate financial performance to your team, to contribute to discussions about how to plan and work to a budget and maybe even to present a business case for approval. This course has been designed to give you the skills to do so.

"If you're not satisfied with the training - we won't invoice you!" - Training Works 

Suitability - Who should attend?

This course is aimed at managers for whom finance is not a key part of their responsibility, who will benefit from understanding it better.

If your direct interaction with finance doesn't go beyond budgeting and the occasional business case, but you want to be able to make sense of financial briefings, and interpret company performance and financial drivers better, this is for you. 

This interactive one day workshop will demystify the basics of finance by allowing you to engage with them in a way which promotes understanding of the way finance is measured, the documents and statements which communicate it and the business conditions which drive financial decisions.

Outcome / Qualification etc.

Participants will receive a Certificate of Completion upon finishing this course.
