Senior managers are often promoted for technical and operational excellence but, without a background in finance, they can find themselves reliant on finance managers and accountants when it comes to the numbers.
This program demystifies finance in an accessible and relatable way to give you a working knowledge of the key financial tasks you need to fulfil as a manager and become confident with financial terms and processes. You will hone your financial sense to know when things are going well—and when something is not right.
The program focuses on sound financial decision-making, evaluating investment proposals, making sense of financial reports and the essentials of budgeting and costing. You will gain the basic foundation in finance you need to become more effective in your role, enabling you to lead your organisation without fear of the numbers.
“Henry takes you on a journey: from making finance really easy to understand to making it something that is applicable in a corporate sense.”
