Being able to understand the financial accounts of an organisation is an essential skill for board members. You don't need to be a numbers expert or to be deeply familiar with accounting standards and terminology but you do need to have a basic understanding of key elements of a Balance Sheet and Profit & Loss / Income & Expenditure Statement, along with the confidence to ask questions on areas which are not clear or give you cause for concern.

If you want to truly understand the business you oversee, you need to speak the language of financial statements. What gets measured gets done, and what gets noticed gets actioned. 

This workshop will provide you with the tools to understand and speak the language of financial and commercial concepts:

  • Provide a framework for commercial and financial analysis
  • Enhance your ability to understand financial information
  • Identify commercial and financial “red flags”
  • Build the bridge between the Board and operational aspects of your business.
