Business Finance Foundations. For Women in Non-financial roles

Become fluent in business finance so you can grow into your dream role, have more opportunities, be a strategic partner and decision-maker.

If finance feels a bit intimidating, yet you want to conquer it because you know you need to know it to advance and grow, you're in the right place.

Carol Dweck developed a wonderful concept - Growth Mindset. With the growth mindset you can learn anything with the right tools, the right methods, and your own efforts.

To master finance, you need 3 things:

1. Up your inner game: your desire to learn, clear inner obstacles, fears, and self-doubts. 
2. Learn with a teaching method that makes it easy.
3. Practice in a supportive environment.

This program is designed with all three keys.

In this program you'll:

  • Elevate your confidence in learning, understanding, and using business financials.
  • Clear self-doubt about learning and mastering business finance.
  • Discover and practice three fundamentals besides finance that you need to understand in order to speak the language of business finance: an organization's business model, supply chain, and value creation.
  • Learn financial statements and financial metrics so you can be a strategic business partner to help your company succeed.
  • Discover key business drivers for growth and profitability so you can assess what needs to improve and suggest solutions and ideas backed with financial impact. 
  • Learn and practice to speak, interpret and present financials with confidence
  • Learn and practice to present your ideas with clarity, poise, and financial rationale
  • Practice applying financial knowledge to specific projects and areas tailored to your role and interests. For example: budgeting, variance analysis, ROI of a project.

Program Approach to Make it Easy and Empower You to Succeed:

  • Learn with simple steps, one step at a time, building your confidence, with Anna's proven easy-to-follow and fun game-based methodology.
  • Understand financial statements and key financial metrics, budgeting and variance analysis.
  • Practice in a safe and supportive environment (nobody learns to speak a language without actually speaking it).  The key is to have support and plenty of practice.
  • Tap into your infinite abilities to overcome any obstacles to learn and master anything you want.

  • Learn specific areas of finance as they apply to your functional role. 

    So you can:

  • Understand your organization's goals, initiatives and reasons for organizational changes announced by the leadership… and know how you can contribute instead of being overtaken by the stress of uncertainty.

  • Present and support your ideas and recommendations with a financial rationale so you get a green light to have them implemented.

  • Understand how you in your role contribute to the organization's goals and purpose.

  • Identify red flags, risks and challenges and ways to solve them.

  • See the impact of internal and external events to make sound business decisions and recommend creative solutions.
