Finance for non-finance professionals

Start time: 5.00pm AEDT. Part of our YEA CPD Series, this webinar will show you how to partner successfully with finance colleagues, learn simple accounting skills for budgeting and explain financial terms and concepts.
Finance for non-finance professionals


In this one-hour webinar we will cover:

  • what finance teams do
  • how they can help you to do your job more effectively
  • the accounting formulas and some simple accounting skills including preparing a budget
  • explain, in plain English, some of the more common budgeting and finance terms and concepts so you can get the most out of your finance team.

For young engineers, one of the partnerships that will help you to be successful is working with your finance team or finance business partner. There are many things they can do to help you. Like any profession, they have their own language, which can be confusing for those who don’t have a finance background.
