Why book this course?

Budgeting plays a key role in business planning, enabling you to monitor performance and keep an eye out for ‘danger signs’. Without it, you can easily find yourself missing key indicators that something is wrong, and finding yourself in an unnecessary hole.

Our Financial Planning & Budgeting course will help delegates to prepare budgets and make informed budgeting decisions. By the end of the course, you’ll be able to effectively discuss financial information with business partners and colleagues, and make decisions based on practical knowledge and proper planning.

Who is the course for?

This course is ideal for business managers who do not have an accountancy or finance background, and want to better understand how their work impacts budgets.

The skills taught on this course will foster better planning and communication, as well as improving your general understanding of key financial terminology and concepts.
