"And if you don't understand the language and the financial impacts of the words being used in that language you're completely in the dark, right? No wonder people are dead scared and have this fear. So we want to remove the fear of the language and empower people to speak finance confidently." Mark Samowitz.
We chat about the fear non-finance people often experience when it comes to working with accounting and finance teams or when they deal with numbers. Although non-finance people can be completely intimidated, threatened or scared by financial jargon they might 'nod and smile'. Mark tells us about his unique, gamified, interactive discovery-learning methodology and approach to teach accounting and finance to non-finance people. Participants acquire the language of finance and accounting so they can tell the story of their numbers, interpret that story and be empowered to have better financial conversations.
