Finance for Non-Finance Managers

Team Leaders, operations managers, senior executives and board members experience how important finance is as a performance indicator and identify their need to speak ‘the language of business’.

Finance for Non-Finance Managers is a two-day course for managers and aspiring managers with no formal finance qualifications. 

The course demystifies accounting and finance by providing practical understanding of financial management including tools, techniques and terminology. Content includes accounting conventions, interpreting financial statements, cost and target costing, pricing, budgeting, discounting, margin management, variance analysis, ratios, variance analysis, net present value and financial decision-making.

Real world business anecdotes and examples make the accounting and finance theory more relevant by engaging participants in case studies, group activities, and practical exercises to develop their learning and reinforce how to apply their learning in the workplace and other settings where financial skills are required.

“One of the things I enjoyed most about this course was the sheer amount of knowledge and information that was jammed into two days. I will be able to refer back to my notes and the material for years to come.”
– Brad McGinn, Principal Consultant, Telstra Purple
