IMI Finance Briefing with Cormac Lucey: Key Financial Challenges for Irish Organisations in 2013
As managers rise within their organisations and as owners see their businesses grow, they are increasingly confronted by financial questions and decisions. This is even more the case today as businesses struggle to cope with stagnant domestic demand and hyper-competitive international markets. Understanding your business’ critical numbers is not about doing your accountants job, rather it’s about knowing your businesses financial health at all times and knowing how the decisions you make affect the Balance Sheet.
Against this backdrop Cormac Lucey, IMI Associate Faculty argues that there are some common financial challenges facing the majority of Irish businesses today, regardless of size or sector. During his briefing Cormac will describe and illustrate these challenges and explain why a solid grounding in business finance is a must have for any business leader or manager seeking to grow their business, make a valuable contribution to the top team and indeed enhance their own career prospects.
