Location & dates
You've made, or are just about to make, the crucial step from accountant to a senior finance professional such as financial controller or director. In order to succeed at this level you need strong interpersonal skills - technical skills alone will not be enough. This five day modular course is aimed at enhancing these important interpersonal skills to help deal with the new and challenging environment which you will soon be facing. It's carefully tailored to the needs of those aspiring to a senior finance role.
You need to have the project and stakeholder management skills to lead and steer large and diverse projects such as an acquisition and associated due diligence or a major systems implementation. Most projects have an extensive group of stakeholders both directly and indirectly involved in the project. Project and stakeholder management skills are also highly relevant to more routine ‘projects’ such as year end reporting and the budget process.
