Vodafone commissioned ICAEW Academy to deliver a bespoke finance talent development programme to develop 20 of their potential finance leaders of the future.
The aim was to grow their finance talent pipeline from within the organisation, equipping them with technical excellence, commercial insight and leadership skills.
“The course that ICAEW designed for us has been very collaborative in terms of developing the programme and offered the delegates the opportunity to learn much more widely than just a very narrow finance brief," says Peregrine Riviere, Director of Investor Relations, Vodafone.
"Using a number of business case studies, with a lot of work on soft skills such as influencing and challenging, we’ve been able to get people to raise their eyes above the finance parapet and see their business in the broader context of the role.
"This programme has helped us have a much stronger pipeline of future finance directors.”
Finance team leaders must motivate teams while managing expectations from above to meet deadlines and financial targets. This course provides the management skills required to build a high-performing finance team. CPD hours: 6
