Taking The Numb Out of Numbers: Explaining and Presenting Financial Information with Confidence and Clarity

Do your clients, customers, associates and peers tune you out when you are delivering financial information? There are two reasons for this. The first reason is that you are cursed. That’s right…cursed with knowledge! You can’t and don’t want to unlearn your accounting knowledge AND you have forgotten the painful struggles you went through in learning the technical aspects of accounting.
