Who this course is for
This training course will benefit employees working in all levels and areas of your organisation; everybody’s decisions ultimately impact the success of your business.
To enhance employee understanding of what every organisation needs to do to achieve top level success.
Course cost varies depending on requirements. Training is delivered at your office or your chosen location.

Commercial acumen requires an understanding and awareness of a wide variety of areas. This course goes beyond financial skills and principles, looking at a range of dynamics that influence the success of an organisation.
By developing their awareness of these core business principles, participants will leave with a clear understanding of specific actions that they and/or their organisation should take to reach their goals. The course can be tailored with specific examples from your own organisation, enabling participants to approach future decisions with more mindfulness of the wider commercial impacts.
This course can be tailored to your needs, therefore if there’s another aspect of commercial awareness you would like covered in your training course, please get in touch to discuss.
- What is it that makes other organisations successful? Strategies and tactics that they adopt to attain their goals. What are the different ways to measure and define success?
- What is commercial acumen and how is it different from financial acumen?
- Understanding how a business works: a highly interactive simulation reviewing the typical decisions and actions that a business takes and the implications of these, both financially and commercially. Financial jargon will be demystified!
- What does commercial thinking look like? The critical points that should be considered within every commercial decision and how to apply this to your own role.
- What makes a business successful? The seven principles of business success and the eighth hidden, yet crucial, building block.
- Applying these principles of success to your own organisation: what do you need to do differently to achieve/continue to achieve top level success?

I’ve been working with Helen for over 2 years now and she has been working with Eurostar for over 5. She designs and delivers customised workshops for our senior leaders and managers. Helen is a true expert in her field and her ability to turn Finance and Business Cases concepts and tools into engaging and thought-provoking session for managers and leaders is greatly appreciated and receives consistent excellent feedback. She is easy to work with, always going the extra mile and combines the right balance between being friendly and assertive as a subject matter expert. I highly recommend her services.
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 found the training very helpful – probably better than the lectures at University on some topics. Helen was thorough and willing to answer any and all questions.
Use of real life internal examples was very helpful. Will make loan decisions easier.
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.
The practical nature of this course was extremely helpful and incredibly well focused to our needs, engaging me from beginning to end.
Want to say a massive thank you Helen Howard for enabling me to complete my Finance Training for Non Financial Managers. We covered profit and loss, cash flow, balance sheets, markups and margins, capex, and so much more. Whilst going through the training Helen made everything relevant to real business situations, as well as being made relevant to the company I work at myself. I had lots of opportunities to ask questions and Helen very much allowed us to delve into areas that I specifically wanted to develop and gain more knowledge on. Helen’s delivery was relaxed, clear thinking and straightforward. Her effective communication and approachable manner made my training thoroughly enjoyable throughout. Furthermore, she has made herself available for queries afterwards which is exceptional. I highly recommend Complete Financial Training! Thank you again, Helen.
The Trainer was dynamic, open, friendly but professional. This course provided great value to our organisation.
It was an excellent course that was adapted to be very relevant to LandSec.
