Protected: The Finance Leaders’ Bootcamp – getting up to speed! (Run 9) (Online Zoom)
The Finance Leaders’ job is the most challenging and onerous in any company, especially in a public-listed one. Most Finance Leaders (Finance Directors, CFO, Finance Managers, Finance Supervisors and the like) are promoted from within the company, and the overriding difficulty is that incumbent does not have the full knowledge of the role and functions of the next level and how to execute them professionally. Admittedly, in SMEs, the finance manager may have to function like a CFO.
This Bootcamp is therefore designed to enhance these knowledge and skillsets and fill gaps, enabling the Finance Leader to function confidently and execute corporate finance activities professionally. It is a hugely experienced- based as case studies are drawn/adapted from actual cases managed by the trainer over his more than 40 years of corporate experience as Group CFO and CXO of both large Main Board listed companies and non-listed companies.

Financial Planning & Analysis – Moving from lagging to leading indicators
Traditional accounting & finance centres on the entity concept where the firm owns assets and owes equity & liabilities. This approach has its limitations as it does not open our minds to the acquisition and application of economic resources. I prefer to use the approach I called the ”Economic Resources Approach to Accounting” (ERAA), which encapsulates funding and operating resources, the cost of resources (capital), the flow of resources, the utilization of resources, leading to the capture of business values represented by discounted cash flows generated by operating resources. The ERAA approach will enhance the understanding of Financial Planning & Analysis (FPA) from the viewpoint of economic resources.
