Why This Workshop?

Do your operating managers need a sense of business finance?

All managers, in functions other than finance, must have a degree of financial competence and acumen to perform in their roles effectively. They can leverage this financial acumen to create value for the business and its stakeholders. The need for financial acumen increases as managers move up their career paths. Developing such financial acumen across the leadership in the organization will bring long term benefits to the business.

Who will benefit?
Operating managers, divisional heads, profit-centre heads, functional executives at middle to senior management levels, independent professionals and entrepreneurs, who are not from the finance background and have not had exposure to finance training before, will benefit immensely by developing financial sense and financial acumen which they can then apply to improve performance on their jobs.
