What you need to know as a leader
Corporate Finance is at the core of informed, value-generating managerial decision-making. Which numbers really tell the story? Which project to pursue, which to stop? How should an investment opportunity be valued? What is the appropriate financing going forward? Mastering these and many other issues is key for being successful in any leadership responsibility today. This three-day training - specifically designed for managers who are not specialists in finance - will provide you with the essential tools for making informed choices when it comes to financing and investment decisions. Run by highly renowned and experienced experts, it will enable you to stay in full control, communicate effectively with stakeholders, prevail in the competition, and to plan ahead effectively.
