Course was enjoyable and covered all the basic finance concepts. Trainer was engaging and very funny. All the examples he gave were easy to understand and not all finance related. used interesting companies.
I would recommend the course. It gives a good basic knowledge to non financial people in just one day time. I found it good as it keep the students constantly involved during the training session. The P&L Analysis was particularly interesting and helpful to me.
Excellent course and trainer. Our trainer not only had very good knowledge but was able to communicate it and share it in an effective and enjoyable way. He is probably one of the best in his field at delivering this material.
Trainer knew the material & delivered it in an excellent easy to understand manner. Very interactive & helpful.Communication from trainer very good.
Excellent course and trainer. An object lesson in how to make a potentially dry topic interesting.
Excellent course and trainer. I would recommend it because it was the first time to get a clear overview. For me was it perfect – exactly what I need. What I found most useful was using real data from real companies.
I would recommend the course, pitched at just the right level for Non Financial personnel to understand how to interpret the basics. Ted made what could be regarded as a ‘dry subject’ interesting, engaging, relevant to the attendees needs and expectations and dare I say ‘fun’. Maybe the best testimony is that it has encouraged me research more on the subject and increase my understanding further. Minimal use of slides. Good use of flipcharts. Content related to company accounts.
Excellent course and trainer. Course content was extremely interesting but too compressed , would benefit from being a 2 day course.
Excellent course and trainer. Really good exchange – Really good example shared.
