Introduction to Finance for Non-Financial Managers

Introduction to Finance for Non-Financial Managers

Many managers are promoted through skills in their own field – which may not include much financial exposure. Having the responsibility of submitting and working to tighter budgets, reducing costs and coming up with ideas for improving profits may have many non-financial managers feeling out of their comfort zone.

This 1 day Finance for Non-Finance Managers seminar is not designed to turn non-financial managers into financial experts – but rather to introduce them to finance and accounts. Key topics include the role of the finance function, understanding and interpreting the financial statements and preparing and managing budgets.

Attend this course if you need some basic skills in order to read and understand financial reports, create better budgets, and monitor financial performance.

– Knowing who is responsible for finance in your organisation and the important role they play
