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. By the end of the course delegates will be able to understand terminology and take a more strategic role in finance. Maximise profitability by effective management of your company's asset base. Make better business decisions from an evaluation of financial data. Interpret a set of statutory accounts. Calculate and interpret key ratios. Present and handle financial information with appropriate gravitas.
