Applied Financial Training & Development


Training Objectives:
Employees in today’s competitive and difficult business environment cannot be efficient without an applied understanding of the basic concepts of finance and how they affect the company as a whole. Every crucial decision that is taken in the organisation has an impact on cost and, ultimately the bottom-line.

Courses & Seminars
In a corporate context we are well known for our tailor made 'hands-on' seminars and training. These are designed and presented directly or in conjunction with our associates and corporate training providers. We have and do train and develop corporate, government and non-government organisations across Southern Africa.
Corporate Clients:
In an academic context we have been actively involved with various foreign and local Graduate Schools of Business. Amongst the blue chip corporates included in our training portfolio are ANC, HSRC, Bandag, Coca Cola, SAB Miller, MCell, MTN, Daimler Chrysler, Murray & Roberts, Telkom, Dimension Data, Old Mutual, Namib Air, Nam Power, 3 Cities Hotels, Metro Rail & Transnet, Vodacom plus all the major banks and life offices.
Research
Currently non-formal research activities include formulation and design of commercial short courses and programmes. In a professional consulting context, our main interest is financial analysis, failure prediction and non-corporate valuations. The practical application and adaptation of analysis and valuation methodologies is continually being applied.

Approach

We specialise in an applied ‘hands-on’ approach, practical case studies throughout each course ensure that the delegate is not only able to understand the financial aspects of the business, but is also able to immediately and practically apply what has been learnt.
