Course outline

Welcome to the world of the accountant-analyst.

The recent ‘Firm of the Future’ update from CPA Australia recognised that ‘accountants need diagnostic skills to interpret financial statements, along with a range of soft skills.’

The accountant-analyst can see beyond the numbers to picture the world of the client in relation to business life cycle, cashflow, profitability, value and strategy. Being curious about these numbers can open up immense opportunities for your firm to provide additional services.

How many of the accountants in your firm have these skills and the confidence to use them?

Do they take the time to truly understand the client’s financial situation?

Do you have processes in place to encourage the identification of opportunities to add real value to clients by looking beyond the numbers?

In this special online learning course, we’ll take your accountants step by step through the process of developing their analytical skills through a strong curiosity about the numbers.

We’ll use practical examples and case studies to guide your team through the process of asking the right questions about the numbers in front of them.

We’ll explain how these insights into the clients’ world can be used to create leads and drive new business in your firm.
