Angus Farr is one of those rare breeds – both a CIPD HR professional and a Chartered Accountant.
His past career has included stints as a Head of Recruitment, an auditor in an accountancy firm and a double glazing salesman! His day job now as Director of Training Counts is as a coach and trainer developing the business, impact and management skills of mainly ‘technical’ professionals and those supporting them.
He is also a great believer that a little bit of knowledge about finance can go a long way in building the credibility of HR professionals within an organisation and it’s that he’ll be talking about at this event.
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 you 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!
