Professionals from highly technical backgrounds like finance and accounting usually advance in their careers on the merits of their specialised knowledge and skills. Finance professionals who are transitioning, require strong financial acumen that integrates traditional principles of finance management with robust tools and analytical techniques. People management and leadership is often not on the radar or even a consideration early in their career. High potential finance professionals will exhibit a unique combination of hard and soft skills which extend beyond the traditional boundaries of the Finance skill-set.
Finance leaders must possess the ability to drive strategic change, communicate and influence at a top level and inspire transformation across the enterprise – from the shop floor to the boardroom. In order to progress and break through to the next level, accountants and finance professionals need shift their focus to ensure leadership and people management skills are on their development radar. Refining these skills will ultimately increase the opportunities to acquire higher level roles.
Based on extensive experience, this ground-breaking program will enhance the leadership and strategic capabilities of participants in making the transition from technical specialist to a leader in finance. This course has been designed to support participants through discovery of how to do more with less, explore the theory of working smarter and not harder, and ultimately how to become transformational leaders who can position Finance to effectively partner with the business to unlock value and enhance business performance.

Participants will have the opportunity to network with other emerging leaders and take away the tools required to enhance effectiveness and impact as a key decision-maker and agent of change.
