You Can No Longer Be a Non-Financial Leader
or Business Owner

Today, you can no longer be a "non-financial" leader or business owner. As business becomes more global and consumers increase pressure to be more efficient, technical knowledge is not enough. Leaders and business owners must understand the financial impact of their decisions.

The good news is that you don't need to become an accountant. We have designed a workshop to help you make sense of your business numbers.

Business acumen is more than understanding the financial reports. The real
need is for business owners and managers to understand how their behaviour
and actions impact on the financial performance of the business.

The majority of business owners and managers have a level of natural
business acumen which guides them. However, on average this level will
cause them to under-perform or ultimately go broke.

IS IT RIGHT FOR YOU?

The course is designed for leaders in business who are not financial specialists. The workshop provides an understanding of the financial consequences of their decisions. It aims to increase their skills and equip them with tools to use in their everyday decision-making. 

Managers

As companies and business become more global and increasingly commoditised, it is essential that a leader has a good understanding of financial acumen. Strong financial and business acumen will help advance your career, your confidence in decision-making and outcomes for your company.

Business Owners and Entrepreneurs

One of the main reasons for business failure is poor financial management. Business owners are great in their area of expertise but many lack business acumen. Increasing your financial knowledge will help build your business, your confidence and your ability to manage your business.

HOW YOU BENEFIT?
