Financial analysis provides a way of summarising a large volume of accounting information into simple financial measurements. The relationship between the financial statement accounts help investors, creditors, and internal company management to monitor a firm's financial performance compared to previous accounting periods, or may be used to check how well the firm is doing compared to its competitors. A demonstration of how financial statements and ratios are used to assess a company’s performance will be given.

DCM can develop customised solutions or deliver off-the-shelf courses in-house for your team. This approach makes perfect sense for groups of 4+ delegates, enhancing cost effectiveness as well as team bonding.

How does it Work?

Onsite Training is when we come to you to provide training on your premises or at a location of your choice. Not only will we run the course at a time and venue that suits you, we will also develop a unique programme particular to the developmental, cultural and business requirements of your company.

What's Involved?


Step 1 | After initial discussions, you meet with our training specialist. Here you both work together to design and sculpt a more comprehensive programme outline.

Step 2 | From this outline, a course is designed which addresses your exact needs. Sometimes this involves a completely new course designed from scratch, this depends on your needs.

Step 3 | Once you're happy with everything, the trainer will deliver the course at a venue of your choice on a date that suits.

Step 4 | Once complete, feedback will be gathered from delegates to ascertain the ‘true’ impact. And finally a report will be compiled for you outlining outcomes alongside your stated objectives.
