Having worked with Bidwells since 2011, we are proud to have designed and facilitated courses for them that have demonstrably made an impact on their people, their business and their bottom line. We believe that a regular review and refresh of our programmes is essential to ensure we are using the most relevant training techniques and up-to-date content.
The latest review and refresh in 2017 has resulted in even greater success. The testimonial below from their Head of Learning and Development explains what’s been happening:
“Bidwells has worked with Complete Financial Training Ltd over a number of years. We provide foundational finance knowledge as part of our graduate development programme. This covers understanding financial statements and how a business works, financial terminology, analytical techniques and our own internal business process, etc.
Building commercial acumen in fee earners is a critical skill for our industry. It helps them to develop best practice behaviours in financial management. It also provides them with an ability to advise clients for asset management and property investment.
We ran a 2 day graduate level financial programme in February with Helen. The grads remained engaged throughout and enjoyed the practical and visual simulation that Helen built on the floor. They also very much liked Helen’s style – relaxed, informal but highly professional.
We have now refined and developed a programme for all fee earners. This is helping them to focus more on profitability, interpreting client accounts, financial management and evaluation of projects. The feedback has been excellent.
We had partners attend who said it was one of the best and most practical courses they have had. We intend to run this programme across the business as a core education component.
Working with Complete Financial Training is extremely easy. They are flexible, responsive to changing needs and reliable. They take all the hassle out of course management. The one thing I respect most about Complete Financial Training is their depth of knowledge. They are able to tailor the programme exactly to our industry, use relevant examples and appropriate language. This makes a huge difference and a worthwhile investment of fee earners time.
Helens delivery style is also fun and lively which keeps the participants engaged.
Helen and the finance programmes we are running with her are making a real difference to our bottom line. We are already seeing benefits in internal process management, in the commercial discussions and analysis of existing clients and also in pitching for new work.
I have no hesitation in recommending Helen and Complete Financial Training to others and especially for people working in professional services.”
