A unique course to transform your accountant from a data entry operator into a valuable knowledge resource for your enterprise This workshop is specifically for Accountants in Small and Medium Enterprises. It has been structured with a practical orientation towards problems specific to these businesses.

The aim is to change the mindset of the accountant to think beyond data entry and look at the holistic picture of the company as a whole, to work efficiently and effectively understanding the needs of the company and its management.

This highly interactive workshop will be full of practical real life examples.
