Flexible finance experts your business can count on

How confident are you in making financial decisions?

Whether you’re a business owner, a board member, or a senior manager, every decision you make affects your business’s finances.

From which candidate you hire, to whether or not you pursue that new opportunity.

But not all of us have Economics degrees behind us. So when the time comes to make a key financial decision for your business – one that could seriously impact your bottom line – could you confidently make an informed, balanced choice?

For many senior business managers, the honest answer is no. And that’s ok!

Because at The Finance People, we’ve been running online finance and financial risk management courses for years. Helping managers and business owners from all sorts of disciplines to expand their skill set, and give their business a more secure financial future.

How The Finance People can help

We offer expert financial management training courses for both business owners and employees.

Sessions are currently held online, and are hosted by our CEO, Anita Tweats.

Anita has solid experience working in both accountancy practices and in industry, and regularly lectures in finance. By sharing her wisdom in both people management and business finance, she can help you to:

  • Have confident conversations about finance with relevant stakeholders
  • Make better, more informed management decisions
  • Empower employees who would otherwise have little financial awareness
  • Feel more in control of the financial side of your business
  • See the bigger picture, and improve the overall financial health of your business
