Sharpen your skills as a Controller, CFO, treasurer, or analyst, or as a professional in public practice advising clients. You’ll appreciate the mix of practical tips and substantial depth in this full day seminar. Participating in group and break-out sessions, you’ll work through in-depth, realistic cases, but don’t worry, you don’t have to write down your answers! And you’ll interact with peers who share their wide range of skills and experience. The session was created and is presented by an experienced CFO, with extensive real-life insight.
This seminar is the companion course to Practical Tips for Controller & CFOs.
WHO WILL BENEFIT:
Because of the wide range of topic coverage, most accountants would benefit from this seminar, unless they are pure specialists, i.e., forensic, tax, IT, bankruptcy or valuations or audit. It is aimed at accountants in leadership positions, such as Controllers, CFOs, and directors of finance, as well as those in public practice or consulting, who advise clients. Accountants from large companies, government and not-for-profits also find the course useful. It is also helpful for financial analysts.
Participants of the course will learn how to:
- improve the relevancy of your financial reporting to users – this case will help you provide better and more useful information to report users,
- negotiate an offer to finance from a bank – gain practical tips on responding to a very realistic bank offer. How should it be assessed? How can you persuade the bank to revise it in your favour?,
- review a contract from a financial perspective – you review contracts from time to time, how can this be done more effectively?,
- resolve ethical dilemmas in a practical way,
- manage foreign exchange risk, practically – from an accountant’s perspective, not a banker’s, and
- learn how to gain the information you really need on key qualities when interviewing candidates.
