As an accountant you will deal with numbers every day. But how do you communicate numerical data to others? Translating the information you have in a way that makes it accessible to everyone is a key skill. Well-presented and focused data can help you and your colleagues make effective decisions. It can also build support for new initiatives and ideas.
This course demonstrates how best to share and present numerical data to support your individual and organisational goals. You'll explore how effective use of data can enable informed business decisions and win support for ideas while considering your audience, goals and the wider context. You'll also discover how to express numerical data in words or visuals, accessibly interpret it for non-specialist audiences and manage ambiguity and uncertainty.
