Financial Problem Solver & Storyteller

Finance professionals will deal less and less with manual process steps and non-value-adding transactional tasks. In addition to working with big data, finance professionals and executives will become the central “business partner” for all stakeholders in a data-driven company. Analytical skills and problem-solving competencies, including the ability to prepare and successfully communicate data-based insights in a way that is appropriate for the target group, will gradually replace the transactional activities of today.

With our problem-solving and storytelling training, we provide you with the tools that leading global consulting firms use to formulate, structure, and solve complex problems and translate the results into effective communication. You will learn to work hypothesis-based, break problems down into parts, analyze the right data and deliver an effective presentation under the pyramid principle.
