Financial Awareness

Who Should Attend

Anyone who needs to understand financial processes and add financial tools and financial awareness to their skill set.

Being ‘IT literate’ is almost taken for granted now. In today’s organisations however, it is just as important, arguably even more important, to be ‘Finance literate’. Our financial awareness programme enables participants to become familiar with the financial processes within a business so that they can understand what Finance Staff are talking about and also use financial tools to help in their decision making processes.
