Everything can be understood through numbers. If you understand the numbers, patterns emerge.
– Darren Aronofsky
Why do this?
As a financial professional, you may not realise that most people hated maths lessons at school.
Maths is a unique and challenging language. When its elements go together, they have a tendency to show clear, vivid and striking patterns.
But unlike you, most of your colleagues and stakeholders are blind to these.
Numbers are abstract. Numbers have a tendency to baffle the understanding of intelligent people – making them feel dumb in the process. Numbers scare people.
When they’re confused, people like concrete things which they can grab hold of – so that is what you need to give them if your financial report is going to do them any good. Turn the patterns, possibilities and implications which you see in the numbers into a concrete story that even your most number-phobic reader can easily understand and enjoy playing with too.
Write financial reports which weave a clear, compelling and memorable story about your organisation’s finances and what your stakeholders need to do about them!

and meanings behind the numbers so they will know what to do to safeguard your organisation’s future
I expected the Audit Report Writing Workshop to be a very dry and theoretical course with instructions on how we write reports in Vodafone.
But to tell you the truth, I came home and I said to my wife: “Susan, today I’ve had the most amazing training I’ve ever had!” – and I’ve had some great training!
The report writing training was fantastic – the difference being that the trainer really knew how to bring the message across. The training was very interactive. It not only taught me how to write in the most efficient and professional way but also how to make a powerful connection with the reader.
All in all, we not only learnt how to write reports, but we also learnt how to communicate effectively which I think is the key. That was the real added value of this course.

As a training experience, Financial Report Writing Workshop took our attention from the very start – not just me, but the whole group.
People were saying: “Wow! It’s 9 o’clock on the day of the first session and we have already defined exactly what the key problem is with our report writing.”
I would definitely recommend this financial report writing training. It’s not just about the books and the materials, but it’s important to learn things that you will remember at work and know how to use.
I immediately applied what I learnt from the training into my real business life. The expertise of the trainer and how the training was delivered was the key to success here. What is delivered is important, but how it was delivered was what I would also like to recommend. In this sense, it was better than 99% of the training I have had till now.
