It’s only natural that all employees have a basic working knowledge of financial statements and calculations and a general grasp of financial literacy.

During the How to Increase Your Financial Intelligence training you will learn how to read and interpret a few basic financial instruments, discover how to recognise opportunities to increase revenue and shave expenses, and increase your value to the organisation.
