About the workshop
For businesses to operate successfully, they must establish a consistent and streamlined finance function. The key to achieving this is engaging effectively with the rest of the organisation on finance matters, often with parties who have very little or no finance knowledge. To be effective in this context, finance professionals need to focus on acquiring and utilising a diverse range of soft and hard technical skills. Overcoming communication barriers is the key to achieving organisational buy-in for business improvement and is a crucial element in achieving streamlined processes and increased efficiency.
This interactive workshop will provide you with the tools and techniques to embed positive change and drive finance efficiency in your organisation. By exploring different ways to engage internal stakeholders and forming strong cross-functional ties, you can create a system that minimises loss and facilitates business success.
