Finance Directors, CFOs, CEOs and others at all levels of an organisation all want clearly communicated information. The temptation is to spend a huge amount of time on creating visuals and reports that confuse instead of highlighting clear conclusions or recommendations.
Being able to deliver complex & technical financial information professionally, effectively and concisely in a way that engages and influences key, often senior stakeholders is a crucial skill for those in financial roles. It will contribute to improved decision making in your organisation and help to drive financial health, performance and success. It will also ensure that the finance team are adding value rather than cost.
