This course covers finance from the point of view of a director whose primary expertise is not financial, yet who is expected to participate in the financial direction and management of a business.

This course covers the financial terminology needed to communicate at board level and with key stakeholders. As well as instilling the key features of company accounts and the corporate budgeting process, it provides valuable insights into the strategic aspects of financial management, enabling participants to hold their own in the boardroom and with senior colleagues.

Is it right for me?

This course is suitable for directors, both executive and non-executive; also for senior managers close to board level who wish to participate in financial matters more effectively.

It is suitable for those with little or no prior financial training, although those with some financial grounding will still benefit significantly.
