The trainer regularly covers the entire spectrum of topics under the general headings of financial accounting, reporting, management, analysis and communication. His interests range from the technical detail of IFRS and GAAP accounting to the ‘dark arts’ of impression management in the ‘front half’ of company reports. He has a special interest in the use of KPIs and of alternative ‘underlying’ or ‘pro forma’ performance measures for communication with investors. He also provides specialised training in financial modelling and valuation, and in the effective presentation and communication of financial information. Prior to becoming a trainer, he had worked as a group finance manager for one of the UK’s leading industrial and commercial real estate investment companies, and then subsequently as the treasurer of a subsidiary of Deutsche Bank.
Any course of this nature will require an unavoidable minimum of theoretical content, but all sessions will be as practical as possible and will invite active participant contributions and discussion.
We pride ourselves on using exercises and case studies drawn from real life, so that participants fully appreciate the commercial relevance of what they are learning
A comprehensive workbook will be provided to each participant as a ‘resource bank’ for the programme and as a continuing point of reference in their subsequent work.
