Finance for Non-Financial Managers
Very useful course in terms of content and knowledge Paul's knowledge of the subject. The workbook is great but(hense the 4 above) sometimes difficult to follow. Could be colour coded by section and with more lively diagrams to illustrate. For example - exercise pages could have idntifiable icons to ensure we know where we are up to. Thank you - over all great course.
