Finance for Non-Financial Managers and Excel Modelling for Telecoms Companies

Our finance and Excel courses are modular and can be adapted to meet client’s specific needs.

Finance for Non-Financial Managers

This course can be delivered as a one or two day programme. We can deliver the programme using our generic telecoms content or we can tailor the content to reflect the client’s own market and business data. The modules can also be tailored to focus on different aspects of finance and accounting. Typical content includes:

  • Removing the mystery surrounding financial jargon – EBITDA, Free Cash Flow, WACC, Return on Invested Capital, etc
  • Providing participants with a series of steps with which to review and analyse financial information
  • Developing an understanding of the telecoms sector, a telecoms business and the client’s own performance from a financial perspective
  • Helping participants understand the financial targets they are asked to pursue and how their decisions influence the results
