“I now know what to tell finance, and what to ask them! I think I’ll be able to make my way through our budget statements, with feelings of despondency based on understanding the figures, rather than not understanding the figures… This workshop was far more interesting and relevant than I feared, Thank you so much!

It’s always interesting to see how people’s confidence in interpreting financial reports can be transformed in just a day. I’ve spent two decades doing finance training within the NHS and have developed a Seven Step Method for interpreting financial reports using seven questions, making three calculations and taking no more than 15 minutes. It works every time.
