When the penny drops ' larger

The favourite part of a FAST Financial Modelling Tutor's day is when the penny drops - the moment a delegate grasps just how easy FAST spreadsheets are to use, amend and develop.

FAST Financial Modelling is the most effective way in which to design and build spreadsheets because it allows you to create models founded on simple, clear calculations. Models that are easily understood by modellers and non-modellers alike.

Training your modellers to use the FAST standard brings significant benefits for your company: greater efficiency, productivity and collaborative working. FAST Financial Modelling leads to considerably less time spent identifying errors, allowing more time to be spent on value-added analysis.

The first public course in Ireland for FAST Financial Modelling is being held at Independent College Dublin, in Dawson Street, on May 15-16, 2012.

Many of the world's leading companies have trained their modellers in the FAST standard methodology, including HSBC, Deloitte, Grant Thornton, Mazars, Standard Chartered, Balfour Beatty, Lufthansa and Siemens.

To find out how to make the 'penny drop' for you, visit www.ambitiousminds.co.uk/fast-dublin.

FAST Financial Modelling has been developed by, industry experts F1F9 . F1F9 courses are delivered by Ambitious Minds, the financial and business education specialist.
