One to One Coaching
We have had very positive feedback on our one to one coaching programme, which was originally aimed at younger analysts at larger institutions. Here, we work with an analyst on a project, and help accelerate their progress up the learning curve. We do this for staff at various levels, from 1 year experience to those who have passed the CFA qualification, but are keen to develop their skills. All participants have found it extremely useful and of course it has the additional significant benefit of saving senior analysts' time.
The programme has now been extended to corporate executives. As an example, we are training a senior manager at a major client, who has a legal background, and has never studied finance. We are doing a crash programme on how to read company accounts, how to analyse businesses, and how to present financial figures effectively to potential investors. The client, who has been promoted to a very senior role which involves making significant investments, dedicates two hours a week and has benefited enormously, as he now feels much more comfortable on all aspects of finance relating to his new role. The benefit to the client is immeasurable, but clearly huge.
