Introduction to Finance
 
Managers are often asked to make decisions or manage budgets which will impact upon the financial performance of a business without having received adequate financial training.  This course is for non financial managers who require a sound understanding of finance, enabling them to participate confidently in financial discussions and decision making.  During this short course you will get an insight to both financial and management accounting principles, the interpretation of company accounts, cash flow management and budgeting.  In addition it covers the basis upon which financial cases can be built and judged and would benefit someone wanting to improve their confidence with financial terminology and the use of standard accounting reports.
 
Who should attend: Non-financial managers e.g. sales, marketing, operating, distribution, administration, business managers, project managers, new budget holders and those whose work involves an appreciation of finance, budgets, cashflow and accounting methods.
 
If time permits we can interpret key components of your company's accounts during the course. This exercise can be very enlightening.
