What Participants Say
The best hands-on accounting concepts for the non-accounting manager I've ever attended!
I liked the combination of financial and managerial topics and how they were brought together over the three days. I will now 'see' and 'think' and make decisions differently thanks to Paul and Germain.
It was an "eye opener" for me. I have a better understanding of many discussions I have listened to in the boardroom.
Great overall perspective for business management. You will gain knowledge on key factors to consider in any environment—both basic and in-depth principles in a clear, concise and usable manner.
Excellent program which provides concepts and tools for financial management at an understandable level.
Good overview of the use of accounting and finance concepts in business decision making.
Professors were very knowledgeable, clear & concise; covered topics that I could and can use in my job.
Great background builder. Would highly recommend especially to members just joining an executive management team.
Practical, contemporary, necessary for anyone in a position to make decisions in a business.
