Financial Development Programme for Non-Financial Managers

Understanding the financials has never been more important for the managers and leaders of organisations.  Better decision making results from an improved understanding of the numbers and therefore better profits and cash flow.

This highly practical and engaging two-day programme will help directors and managers develop their knowledge of finance, understand how their decisions affect an entity’s financial health and performance and what action they can take to positively impact the bottom line.

Throughout the two days, you will learn how to read and interpret the key financial statements, find out why cash and profits are different, discover how to influence and improve profitability, enhance budgeting skills and carry out a practical team activity to put all the learning into practise.

This Financial Development programme for non-financial managers is available throughout the UK.
