Trainer Profile

Lindsey Byrne

If you need to identify and manage or mitigate risks in doing business this course will suit you perfectly! Risks come at businesses from many different angles; we’ll help you take a step back and look at the business, the industry and market, and the wider economic environment in a holistic way that will help you predict and manage areas of business risk.

By the end of the day, you’ll not only feel confident in interpreting financial information, you’ll be able to predict what you expect to see before you even open the published accounts! We’ll look at some specific risk measures and we’ll also look deeper and in different ways at some of the common measures applied to gain a greater depth of understanding than the usual “basic” analysis widely published.
