Driving Performance with Metrics2 Accounting creditsDo you struggle to keep budgets current in the face of an ever-changing business climate?  Do you recognize that actual spending can be far from what a department’s spending should be?  Twenty-first century performance metrics reduce work, reduce politics, provide flexibility and substantially improve the performance management process.  This valuable session will show you how to drive organizational performance using these powerful techniques. Effective Business Writing2 Communication & Marketing creditsAmerican businesses report losing $400 billion a year to unclear writing that wastes time, kills contracts and turns off customers.  Optimize your time spent in communications as a writer and a reader.  Prevent your readers from sending your documents to the circular file because they are too much work to decipher.  Write with clear purpose and enjoy the results and time saved.  Be part of the solution, not part of the problem – write it right the first time. Presentation Skills for Success2 Communication & Marketing creditsWe strive to make effective presentations, but this may not be one of our strengths.  Presentation skills are essential to effective leaders, especially for CFOs who must tell their company’s story to both internal and external audiences.  In this seminar, you will learn; (1) to deliver presentations effectively and with confidence, (2) to take “big picture” information and make it relevant to specific audiences, and (3) to conduct an effective “Question and Answer” session.Objective:  To understand how to make your presentations more effective. Communicating Financial Information to Non-Accountants2 Accounting creditsDo you ever get blank looks when you present your company's financial statements?  Does your board nod knowingly, during your presentation, but never seem to have any meaningful questions?  It could be that they have no idea what you are talking about and are just pretending to understand!  Learn how to connect with your CEO, board, fellow managers, and ordinary employees so they understand your message.  Learn to motivate them to action. Come hear a veteran CFO tell you how.
