Problem Solving & Storytelling Expert

Course Type: Online

Effective communication, creative market and brand strategies, transparent dialogue with the public? These seem unrelated to the finance function or finance-related areas! Or so one might think. However, today’s finance professionals are increasingly seen as strategists. Much of decision-making nowadays is based on financial data, which only holds value if communicated in a way that even non-finance professionals can understand the opportunities or risks hidden within.

With our problem-solving and storytelling training, we provide you with the tools used by leading consulting firms to articulate, structure, solve complex problems, and translate the results into impactful communication. You will learn to work based on hypotheses, break down problems into components, analyze the right data, and deliver a powerful presentation based on the pyramid principle.

Become a “Problem Solving & Storytelling Expert” and discover how you suddenly find complex problems enjoyable, how your ideas and suggestions easily get heard and serve as the foundation for significant business decisions.
