This one day course provides over 400 useful and unusual tips for accountants in financial leadership. The tips are illustrated through concrete examples derived from practical experience. As an accountant, you must deal with all kinds of different issues and situations. You have your experience and what you learned from colleagues and mentors, but this course will provide you with many more veteran tips, including many unconventional ones. You won't find these tips in courses or text books, but you'll be able to use many of them. Value will also be derived from the sharing of experiences and practices by the participants. It provides specific opportunities for bench-marking some practices with those of your peers.

Over 7.000 accountants have attended this seminar internationally. The seminar was created and is presented by an experienced CFO, with extensive real-life insight.
