Course description

Directors who are well-versed in understanding financial information and can ‘read between the lines’ are able to gain a better understanding of what is driving performance and make smart decisions for their organisations for the future.

But if finance is not your area of expertise it’s important to learn how to interpret financial reports, keep your eye on what’s important and to ask the right questions to get the information you need.

In the IoD’s four e-learning modules you can learn more about key financial concepts, legal obligations and the important aspects of the financials for the NFP sector to help contribute to better decision making.
