The accountant as strategic influencer and adviser

Category: MASTER COURSE

Gain insight into the changing role of the accountant. Learn negotiating and influencing styles as well as how you can support the transformation of finance into a value adding business.

Who should attend?
Accountants and financial managers who want to ensure that finance is seen as adding value.

Too often accountants and the finance function are seen as staid and boring, out of touch and unapproachable, enforcing their demands on the organisation. Yet undoubtedly almost everyone would agree that a value added finance function is a key part of any successful organisation.

  •  Understand what is meant by the term 'business partner' - and how to be one.
  •  Discover how you can influence your organisation.

Programme outline

  • A  definition of the accountant as business partner.
  • The influencing skills that need to be developed to meet these aims.
  • A realistic view of how the finance function and the accountant are viewed.
  • The essential influencing and negotiating skills that today’s accountant needs.

The course starts at 9.30am. Lunch and refreshments are included.
6 CPD hours (where applicable).
