Random Customer Review

The course was very good. It has made me think a lot more about how my actions affect others in a positive and negative way. It shows I have areas I need to develop within myself and my team. Feels like the start of a new way of thinking. The Trainer's presentation was very clear, approachable, knowledgeable.

What is Financial Awareness Management Training?

Financial Awareness Managment Training Course

In a business context, financial awareness is the development of the fundamental laws and disciplines of "balancing the books".

The reason it is important is that some managers have budgetary responsibilities and decision making responsibilities, but they don’t have enough technical knowledge or sufficient understanding of the principle of finance to allow them to function at an optimum level.

The purpose of the management training is to provide individuals with a better understanding of different financial methods within a business.

The Training Method

The training method follows this general pattern - the training is very interactive and interesting:

  1. The trainer gives a clear explanation of the point in question with specific examples.
  2. Then, the delegates practice by doing an exercise with each other.
  3. The delegates practice by doing an exercise with the trainer.
  4. All points are supported with full written notes to take away.
  5. Delegates are asked to write down an associated action, for each point made.
    (At the end of the day, we have about twenty such actions, from which the delegates choose six which are the most personally meaningful).

Note: we do not believe in placing people in any situation of embarrassment by demanding that they 'perform' in front of the whole group. So you can relax: come on this course and be at ease; ready to learn new skills!

The course material was extremely beneficial. Time flew and it was by far the best I have ever had. The trainer was very resourceful, experienced, inspirational and motivating, with a captivating style.
