Workshop on Finance for Company Directors

This one-day workshop entitled 'Finance for Company Directors' will provide an understanding of company accounts, evaluating financial performance, and the right questions to ask as a company director. It will be presented by Caroline Kirrane, Chartered Financial Analyst Charterholder.

Previous delegate feedback:

“This is an excellent workshop for people who do not have an in-depth knowledge of finance. It covers the critical areas that all directors should have familiarity with in order to effectively carry out their duties/responsibilities on the board. Highly recommended.” 

Tom Leahy, CEO, BDM Boylan 

This workshop will cover the following areas:

Detailed review of the three main financial statements:

  • Income statement (profit and loss account)
  • Balance sheet
  • Cash flow statement (including recap on working capital mechanics

Review of the four major categories of performance:

  • Profitability, operations, liquidity and solvency

Fundamentals of corporate finance:

  • Understand the basic principles of corporate finance - time value of money, discounted cash flows, Net Present Value and Internal Rate of Return, capital structure decisions, cost of capital

Case study:

  • This will include the use of all tools and techniques learned throughout the day to analyse a company and diagnose performance issues.
