Business Acumen Training and Development

Buy Low, Sell High..... and Know Why!

Phil Young - Corporate Education Consultant

I teach courses in business acumen all over the world for a wide variety of leading global companies. I specialize in teaching finance to non-financial managers and professionals. My courses also cover topics in strategy and marketing.

I use a business simulation as an important part of the courses that I teach. This original simulation is based on a composite of the dozens of companies that I have worked with over the past 30 years.

Recently, I developed an innovative, Self-directed course in Business Acumen involving the use of mp3 files and a workbook. This course can also be combined with webinars or traditional classroom seminars. Companies such as IBM, Booz Consulting, ADP and Red Bull have used this self-directed course in their leadership development and general training programs. They have found this course to be a high-quality and cost-effective way of delivering business acumen training. Their learners have found the content to be practical and engaging and its format to be flexible and highly mobile.

    Phil Young Webinars

    My most popular course offering is finance for non-financial managers. This material can presented as a generic format or it can be customized for specific client requirements. I also offer a "MicroMBA" course that covers the essential concepts and tools of analysis in finance, accounting, strategy, and marketing. This course can be presented in a three, four or five-day format. My course content can also be delivered via webinars. These webinars are particularly effective when used with my self-directed course on Business Acumen.
