MP135 : Be the Confident Accountant – Think Critically, Speak Convincingly & Achieve Career Progression NEW

7.00 CPE Hours (Others)
Classroom


Programme Objective
Presenting audit findings or management reports to the management can be a stressful endeavor. Ill-prepared presentation that is not able to articulate the crux of issues and its risks will result in rejection of proposal or audit findings.

Brushing away valid operational risk or audit findings is actually a disservice to the organization, as the gap still exists. Often time, untrained finance persons and accountants were unable to give a direct and holistic explanation to the management – and this could even lead to an impact in their career.

The skill of logically laying out argument with proper supporting, and presenting it in a manner that interest the management and business leaders is a must-have for all finance professionals and auditors. Audit issues presentation is essentially a presentation of negative news.  Hence, it is important that careful strategic planning is done prior to the presentation.  

High impact presentation to C-suite and audit committee is another skill that auditors should possess. This course will equip the participants with key skills in making impactful presentation that is logical, attention grabbing and convincing.
