On-Demand Educational Session

Finance professionals have important stories to tell within their organizations. Beyond the numbers for which finance professionals are known are the reasonings that, if conveyed clearly, can help shape corporate strategy. Understanding your audience is a key to communicating effectively and is an important skill that can help finance professionals enhance their career as well as help guide an organization’s key stakeholders to more impactful decisions.

Additional topics include the acute state of communication, setting up a distraction-free decentralized workspace, and personal resiliency.

  • Deepen your understanding of your audience in order to most effectively structure the message
  • Improve your ability to present financial data to your peers, coworkers and management team
