Greg Stuart, National Manager, Apprentice Training NZ

“Colour Accounting is an excellent refresher for those who have experience reading and interpreting financial statements. Likewise it’s a great starter for people new to understanding finances.

“I’m able to better communicate financial objectives to my team and help them understand why their work is important.

“Working collaboratively with the other attendees on case studies has given me a fresh perspective and I’m able to make better, more informed decisions.”

Why Colour Accounting?

No matter what industry you’re in, achieving and maintaining financial control is vital. It's important that your non-financial managers are financially literate to confidently make the right decisions.

Unlike other financial workshops Colour Accounting is hands-on and collaborative. Courses are available nationwide.
