Non-profit group offers seminar on financial statements


Making sense of financial reports is the challenge faced by decision makers. While many can read financial statements, only a few can correctly interpret and analyze the numbers to make the right decisions in board and management meetings.

To help people master financial statements, the Center for Global Best Practices will hold a seminar titled “How to really read financial statements for board directors and decision-makers” on Thursday and Friday, June 19 and 20 at the EDSA Shangri-La Manila in Mandaluyong City.

The two-day seminar will feature Jonathan Ravelas, Banco de Oro chief market strategist, whose valuable insights have appeared in the Asian Wall Street Journal, ANC, Bloomberg and BBC, and Mary Jane Rosales, former president of The Institute of Internal Auditors in the Philippines.

This easy-to-understand program is designed for decision makers who use financial statements. It aims to help businessmen, board directors and managers make sense of annual reports, income statements, balance sheets and cash flow statements.

Participants will become more effective in their decisions if they understand the numbers and the meaning behind those numbers. Most importantly, improving financial literacy will ensure that you are being dealt with fairly and squarely by accountants and finance professionals.
