Executive Coaching that will change your thinking
"I bought Executive Business Finance Coaching from That Figures. The coaching completely changed the way I think about my business and the way I evaluate business decisions. Finance became exciting all of a sudden and the topics were introduced and explained in a way that I could apply it directly to the business and even personally. I can't tell you what a difference this has made to me in the few weeks since we met. Thank you. I shall definitely be using That Figures again."
Caroline Armstrong (Vaccines Marketing)
Training that leads to efficiency and savings
"Thank you for spending time teaching me about financial spreadsheets and how to look at the business. It was really helpful to be able to talk things through with you and realise that actually I just need to ask more questions and not be walked over when it comes to understanding the departmental budget statements! The morning was very helpful in understanding the differences between balance sheets and profit and loss. I think the afternoon will be the most useful to me in terms of my own business. Understanding the tricks of the spreadsheet and being able to clearly set up a model for the income and expenditure of the service will be invaluable and I intend to review this with the latest figures for doctors and patient slots so that I can model what will happen in the next few months. I also really like the ability to turn the model round and look at cost per patient - something again that is useful to do when looking at subgroups of patients and how to manage them more efficiently and be able to show the cost advantages of this."
Add value to customers by understanding their P&L
"That Figures ran one of our Global Brand Meetings looking at financial options for engaging our Key Customers. I was struck by how clear it became that we had been looking for value in the wrong areas. We came out of the workshop with a clear view of where value added initiatives could be found in the customers businesses. All by just looking at the numbers! All of a sudden we had unusual clarity of what financial value to the customer meant and we are initiating a customer programme to maximise it. That Figures have become a key partner in recognising value add and developing our financial offering to our customers."

Rachna Murthy, Consultant Ipswich NHS
"The ‘turning expenditure into investment’ course I attended exceeded all my expectations. It made finance engaging and relevant to my role and provided me with tools and insights that I can use in my career to drive greater value and tangible ROI in work that I do. I would strongly recommend this course to all those looking to add real value in their organisations and to increase accountability for the way resources are used."

"I found the course extremely valuable, and it has certainly opened my eyes to the way I will conduct my business in the future, but also analyse proposals and ideas from others to ensure we invest for the business wisely and consistently. Many thanks for the opportunity to attend, I look forward to working with you in the future and can see real benefit for this course with a number of the current KAM team. Please feel free to utilise me as an advocate should you need."

"Once again thank you for this very valuable and easy to apply course! The training has been very comprehensive and practice-oriented! My next steps now will be to look at one or two further projects retrospectively in terms of ROI and apply the techniques within my tactical planning process!"
Anja Liebeskind Brand Manager Oncology
"I was surprised how much I enjoyed this course considering it was heavily financial – I really enjoyed the thought process I went through. I really liked the interactive training style and the fact that you were very patient with me. I felt triumphant at the end of day 2 with our business case!"
Anita Thomson Business Manager Cardio Vascular
"We are very pleased and grateful for the financial analysis undertaken by That Figures on our service here in London. They listened, refined their analysis on the basis of what we told them and were able to present their work in a way that was clear and easy to understand. They were also able to give us with confidence about our work – not part of the remit, I know. We go forward with the clearest analysis of the financial state of our service that we have ever had."
