"I can not speak highly enough of this workshop and have recommended it to friends and colleagues. I strongly encourage anyone looking to gain a better understanding of financial concepts to attend. The team from Deloitte are highly skilled in de-coding the jargon and explaining financial concepts in a way that is approachable and based on real life examples."
Head of Legal
"I would thoroughly recommend the workshop to other in-house lawyers. I found the workshop very useful, well-paced and relevant to my job. In-house lawyers will know how important it is to understand financial information and many of us have no financial training at all. This workshop is great because it teaches you the fundamentals, but also the workshop approach means you work through examples, so it’s much easier to retain the information."
Senior Counsel, telco
"This is a very practical, hands on seminar which demystifies financial language. The presenters are easy going, and happy to answer any questions, no matter how basic. This seminar is a must for in-house counsel interacting with financial documents and business finance reporting."
Intermediate Legal Counsel, energy company
"I really enjoyed the day. The presenters were able to convey accounting concepts in a way that was clear and understandable. They used a practical format with the class working through exercises as a team. This was good fun and a great way to learn. The biggest plus about the course I think though was that they tailored the information to suit the audience. They went through an annual report and were able to identify/demystify the numbers in a way that would be useful to in-house lawyers."
