Financial Boot Camp

A seminar series for the non-financial professional

Financial Boot Camp is a three-class series designed to teach basic financial principles, demystify financial jargon, and provide a competitive advantage for non-financial professionals. Take one, two or all three seminars and gain financial knowledge you can use in the workplace.

Financial Boot Camp provides much more than just financial theory. Real world examples bring financial basics to life and make it relevant to your everyday job responsibilities. Financial Boot Camp is taught by Diane Renihan, and Diane knows how to explain complex financial concepts in readily understandable and practical ways!

Finance, like HR, is one of those critical areas where many founders/CEOs and executives lack expertise and interest. Diane’s “boot camp” approach makes learning the financial workings of any organization simple and fun. It’s timely and practical and I recommend it for anyone operating in today’s business environment!”
