Financial literacy is an essential skill that is always useful. Regardless of the organization you belong to, your position there and your job description, understanding and using the numbers in your reports is a key talent that is useful anywhere in the world in any capacity.
But while financial reports are an essential tool, there’s lots of stuff that is left out of them. Accountants need to have backup for their numbers and sometimes financial systems produce a an exactly documented result but one which is precisely wrong. In this session Mike Fletcher will give you an idea of accounting from a Triple Bottom Line point of view so that you are roughly right, and how to use your financial and other reporting systems more effectively.
This financial literacy session is GUARANTEED to be different from any accounting training you have ever had in your life! Don’t miss it!
