What people are saying

“The workshop provided an excellent deep dive on finance matters pertaining to company directors and was current and thought-provoking. Caroline is a superb presenter and expert in her field. I would very much recommend the workshop.”
David Kelly, Executive Director, Gas Networks Ireland

"Advanced Finance for Company Directors packs in quite the punch for a one-day workshop. Despite having an accounting background and superficial familiarity with financial statements, this workshop helped me gain a more in-depth understanding of Balance Sheet nuances and the connectivity between the three main financial statements. Caroline is an excellent presenter of this workshop. She is knowledgeable, engaging and is able to make the discussions rich and interesting."
Abhijeet Arun Harolikar, Fintech Advisor and Investor, Ex-PayPal, and Board Member at Progressive Credit Union
