For all in-house counsel, for those in a corporate, not-for-profit, or government agency, a fundamental understanding of finance is now a core competency. This one-day short course is conducted by a senior finance executive and company director experienced in translating financial concepts into relevant and meaningful everyday examples. Understanding the accounting principles, standards and procedures that sit behind financial statements and financial records is essential to demystify the ratios and insights that can be drawn from the numbers and notes on the page.
