Commercial, Financial & Business Acumen Training

We work with a whole variety of people and roles that benefit from improving their commercial, financial & business acumen.

Our courses can either run in isolation, or as part of a broader programme.  Courses are typically held in one day, use a single facilitator and are high energy and interactive.

Our commercial, financial & business acumen training courses focus on the key principles of running and managing a business.  They help delegates to see the world through the eyes of a business owner.  We provide practical tools that can be applied immediately within the organisation, either as an individual or a group.

What We Focus On

Key focus areas are completely bespoke.  Below is an illustration of typical knowledge and skill areas that a workshop would focus on and seek to transform for all delegates.


  • Commercial thinking and its application in any business, any role
  • A useful profit model and how this relates to each delegate’s role
  • Financial terminology and calculations
  • Commercial forces and how these affect businesses
  • P&L management, cash flow and balance sheets
  • Interpreting financial and numerical data and understanding key messages
  • The principles of ROI

I often hear myself say “Great opportunity to use your PDW skills” – or, in shorthand, just “PDW!” This has been the most effective training I have done in my career – and to call it training downplays it.

Particularly good feedback from the team on all the practise sessions as this really brings the theory to life – and a great team helping to do that.

Good structure, very well facilitated and the combination of project and personal skills training meant that it was easy to see how the personal skills could be practically applied.
