Why book this course?
Despite having a responsibility for key decision making within an organisation, many directors and senior managers lack even a basic understanding of finance. Without it, you may be making decisions that jeopardise your financial security, or unnecessarily causing issues for your financial director and other staff.
Our Finance for Non-Financial Directors and Senior Managers course is designed specifically for non-finance directors and senior managers. It will help to demystify the world of finance, giving delegates the confidence and ability to assess the financial health of any organisation, and implement the right solutions.
