About the course

The coronavirus pandemic has forced us all to adapt to new work patterns and change our expectations. Economies around the world are still in various stages of lock down, and there is still much uncertainty, but now is the time to plan the future.

In this course, each topic has been carefully chosen to create a one-stop shop for recovery. The course starts with an analysis of the financial reporting implications of the pandemic, designed to ensure that you can create financial statements that provide a true and fair view of the chaos we have all experienced. It then provides an analysis of the decision making and structural changes you should consider when creating the resilient organisation of the future.

Finally, the course explores the role of technology in future planning as well as your leadership position in the post pandemic finance function. This course provides you with all the tools you will need to succeed.
