Many business decisions are made which are based on, or have a major impact on, the finances. The aim of this one-day course is to provide managers with awareness and basic understanding of the way finance affects their business objectives.

The content is delivered in an easy-to-understand way, speaking your language and enabling you to understand the financial way of seeing things as well as giving you practical opportunities.

During the day you will learn to read the accounts, understand the terminology, be able to influence and control your key financial measurements, targets and budgets - all from an operational management perspective. The programme enables to you gain confidence in developing financial negotiations, participate in meetings where the finances are being discussed, build your own budgets, monitor your budgets and take a more active role in the financial aspects of the organisation.

This Finance For Non-Finance Managers course is available throughout the UK.
