Project Finance and Investment Appraisal
Who is it for?
This course would benefit anyone involved in projects or capital expenditure proposals regardless of how long they’ve been doing it for. As with all of our courses, the level that this is aimed at can be adapted to suit the needs of the course participants.
I have far more insight into the effect that decisions I make will have on the company. The post-course mentoring was very useful.
I am getting more involved with the financial elements of projects and this has given me far more confidence in that respect. The trainer was very open and approachable.
Phil quickly understood my own development needs whilst also understanding how they fit into the wider financial context. This was invaluable.
Collaborative, engaging, informative, team driven, extremely valuable and a great link between finance and operations.
The course raised my awareness significantly and provided me with the tools to evaluate the financial strength of our suppliers and clients.
I have a much better understanding of Greene King’s finances.
The Trainers understand our business and needs so well that it is like they are part of our team rather than external Trainers.
Excellent – I’m amazed by how much I’ve learnt about the accounts and how they can be used in decision making.
The Trainer was dynamic, open, friendly but professional. This course provided great value to our organisation.
Use of real life internal examples was very helpful. Will make loan decisions easier.
The people involved in creating proposals to spend in a particular area are usually experts in their field, but often haven’t had any training to support their analysis of whether their proposal really is the best idea. Given that projects and capital expenditures often consume a significant part of the finances of the organisation, it is imperative that those involved in them can make high quality objective decisions about which proposals are likely to have the best results, financially and non-financially. This can help prioritise where large expenditures are made.
This course covers the financial evaluation techniques that are a critical part of this decision making process and considers the costing elements of projects/capex expenditures as well as the financial impact of risks relating to them. Participants will leave this course with their own personal action plan detailing how they will implement their ideas to ensure that their organisation can reap the financial benefits of their new knowledge.
We would be delighted to tailor this course to your organisation and the specific objectives of the course participants – contact us for more details!
