OVERVIEW

Numbers are fun for us, but not for everyone. However, if we do not effectively convey the meaning of the numbers, have we delivered value? Make your numbers speak so that the rest of the organization understands. Understand how to better communicate your organizations performance and how to improve it.

DESIGNED FOR

People who are, or aspire to be, CFOs in midsize organizations, as well as business leaders, CEOs, accountants, corporate financial managers, business owners, risk managers, controllers, entrepreneurs, consultants, and the professionals who advise them.

BENEFITS

Develop an understanding of the following areas:
1. Using metrics to improve your organization’s performance
2. Cutting your writing time in half and doubling your impact
3. Making your presentations more effective
4. Connecting with your stakeholders who do not have a financial background

HIGHLIGHTS

Driving Performance with Metrics
Twenty-first century performance metrics reduce work, reduce politics, provide flexibility and substantially improve the performance management process. Learn how to drive organizational performance using these powerful techniques.

Effective Business Writing
American businesses report losing $400 billion a year to unclear writing that wastes time, kills contracts and turns off customers. Optimize your time spent in communications as a writer and a reader. Prevent your readers from sending your documents to the circular file because they are too much work to decipher. Write with clear purpose and enjoy the results and time saved.

Presentation Skills for Success
Presentation skills are essential for effective leaders, especially CFOs who must tell their company’s story to both internal and external audiences. You will learn to deliver presentations effectively and with confidence; take “big picture” information and make it relevant to specific audiences; and conduct an effective “question and answer” session.

Communicating Financial Information to Non-accountants
Do you ever get blank looks when you present your company's financial statements? Does your board nod knowingly during your presentation but never seem to have any meaningful questions? Learn how to connect with your CEO, board, fellow managers and employees so they understand your message and motivate them to action. Hear a veteran CFO tell you how.
