Why do this?
Psychological research has demonstrated that we care more about what we can lose than what we can gain. This is called Psychological Reactance Theory, and it’s the reason why my wife has more vivid memories about the one wedding anniversary that I forgot over the twelve that I have so far remembered.
This has obvious implications when you take your organisation’s key financial results to your non-financial stakeholders. Rich people stay that way because they are cautious about losing what they’ve got. So the information which you give them will be vital – and it’s essential that it’s easy for them to understand.
Your audience does not want to lose. Therefore, your presentation needs to be flawless in terms of your slide deck, your performance and especially the way in which you handle their questions.
But in today’s fast-paced and distracting business environment, you also need an additional “X-factor” to stand out from the crowd, make a memorable impact and get your non-financial stakeholders to understand, remember and buy-in to your action plans.
SHOW NON-FINANCIAL STAKEHOLDERS EXACTLY WHAT THEY NEED TO DO WITH CONFIDENT, FLUENT, MEMORABLE AND PERSUASIVE FINANCIAL PRESENTATIONS WHICH MAXIMIZE YOUR CHANCES OF GETTING THEIR BUY-IN
What are the benefits?
You will start by understanding exactly what your audience wants from you and how to create compelling content which will engage, inspire and persuade as well as showcasing your gravitas and authority.
You will master the preparation process so that you are able to create slide decks which lead the audience to your conclusions and so that you can guarantee that your spoken performance is confident and fluent, even when presenting in high-stress situations and to intimidating large groups.
Furthermore, you will learn how to always make your audience want to listen to you at the performance stage, no matter what time of the afternoon or evening you end up in front of them.
- ELC Consultants’ Fast-Track Presentation Planning Toolkit which will enable you to prepare your key value message and content to exactly fit both your aims, and more importantly, those of your audience
- How to make the content of your presentation as easy to understand and logically compelling for non-financial stakeholders so that you can keep your audience with you and maximize your chances of getting them to buy
- The most effective way to present numerical data and trends like tables, graphs, and charts to prove your points
- The 5 best performance techniques to fully engage your audience, lead their thoughts to your conclusions and guarantee that they always want to listen to you
- How to confidently, effectively and successfully handle questions from the audience … no matter what they ask you. And how to answer their objections to persuade them to agree with you
This is a practical and engaging workshop backed up by robust theories from psychology and communication theory and with role-play exercises replicating the exact challenges you will face on the job.
Show your stakeholders the real story of your organisation’s finances so you can persuade them to accept your action plans with confident, fluent and authoritative financial presentations
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.
