Please note the session time is set in AEST and adjust accordingly for your local time zone.

Having the ability to understand financial statements is no longer enough. Business leaders must have a firm understanding of how to use financial information to drive decisions and strategy, and to understand the health and capabilities of your business. This course will enable you to achieve both, as well as to establish warning indicators, and assess the true value of your business to make informed and effective decisions. You will learn the practical value of financial performance dashboards to monitor and communicate key performance measures.

This course is tailored for directors, shareholders, senior management and next generation leaders.
