Event description

Description

Arrive from 1830

Like any language, being able to speak a few words of ‘finance’ certainly helps build credibility with native speakers!

An organisation’s annual accounts are probably the most visible and discussed record of financial performance. Although the prospect of actually ‘reading’ them may make you want to either scream or fall asleep, it’s a useful skill to have.

In this session Angus will take us on a whistle‐stop tour of a typical set of accounts, highlighting the basic anatomy and key features, including the numbers an organisation is keen for you to know and where to find the numbers they usually aren’t!

The focus is on identifying the financial and non‐financial information important to you as HR professionals.

No prior knowledge of finance is expected but the session is hands‐on so no snoozing there at the back!



OUR SPEAKER

Angus Farr, Director Training Counts

Angus Farr is a Chartered Accountant and Chartered HR professional and spends most of his time helping individuals and organisations develop these all‐important soft skills. His favourite management theory is the Peter Principle that basically states ‘people rise in organisations to a level of incompetence and then stay there’. Having a favourite management theory means that Angus really does need to get out more, so is very grateful for this invite to the Dorking CIPD Group.
