Why You Should Attend

[Virtual+ Training Course] Advanced Financial Statement Analysis

Financial statements can often times be too inward looking and inflexible. What is the financial leverage of your core business drivers? Are you adequately adaptable to sudden market changes? Are you a true business partner to your stakeholders? Most importantly, have you developed a robust financial framework that indeed minimises external economic risk and focuses on creating greater value by preventing a potential negative domino effect? Many financial accountants, financial managers, controllers and even senior but non financial managers are required to spend a great deal of their time preparing or using financial reports and analysing the data and information they contain. Modern financial reports are complex and comprehensive and in order to analyse them fully and properly, a great deal of thought and care is needed into appreciating what they contain. This intensive and hands on online course provides you with the ideal opportunity to get to grips with a wide variety of analytical techniques that will increase your financial analysis productivity significantly.

This course is rich in terms of the diversity and depth of its content and will help finance professionals to quickly interpret and understand financial statements in a more cohesive manner to be able to make more strategic business decisions. Delegates will come to enhance their financial analysis and reporting skills within the two day programme.

The highlights of the course include:

• Up to date and comprehensive training materials

• Practical, hands on application of the topics covered with full feedback

• Critical review of some of the most important areas of financial reporting alongside the introduction to and exploration of them

• Leveraging the functionality of Power BI for the Desktop, Microsoft Excel and R Statistics by using their Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning capabilities
