Course Description

We accountants speak a different language. Whether we are referring to Debits and Credits, Assets and Liabilities or different sections of the tax code, our clients are generally at a loss to understand what we are saying. They place less value on information they don’t understand and are often too intimidated to ask questions. 

It’s the job of the Modern CFO and the accounting department to not only create and verify financial reporting and information but to make that validated information relevant and useful to the rest of the organization. The language of accounting can no longer be a foreign language spoken and understood only by accountants. It’s time for a shift in focus from the CFO level all the way through the accounting department.

It’s not easy, but with some creativity and perseverance it is possible to get people to understand and to care about the numbers. In this session, you will learn secrets of de-mystifying accounting and increasing the value of the services you deliver.
