Financial Statements for Managers - Finance / Accounting Seminar

Program Description:

Make sense of financial statements and become a better manager.

You may think that financial statements and reports are something only financial people do. And they speak a funny language that you don’t understand. Not to mention, it all seems so boring.

Financial Statements for Managers dispels those myths. The truth is that financial statements are not boring at all. In fact, they’re very enlightening if you know how to read them and what the numbers mean. Also, understanding financial statements gives you power — the power to know how the numbers affect the financial health of your organization or any organization you want to evaluate.

Evaluate performance, spot opportunities, and head off trouble with a clearer financial understanding.

In a leadership position it is absolutely vital that you understand your organization’s finances, where the money is coming from, and where it’s going. Not only does this give you a better overall understanding of performance, but it also lets you keep your finger on the pulse and spot potential trouble or opportunities much faster.

Stop struggling with financial reports — get the understanding you need to make sense of finances and accounting in this highly informative one-day course.

Understand and justify the financial impacts of your decisions.

You can’t avoid financial statements; at some point you’re going to have to analyze a spreadsheet or do some sort of financial reporting. And if you haven’t had a lot of training in financial statements, they can be extremely confusing. Rows of numbers, profit and loss, contribution margin — it might as well be Greek. But as a manager, you need to know what these things mean.

Sign up for this one-day course and you’ll be making decisions like a financial wizard in no time!
