Why Us

You can complete these online courses at your own pace, whenever and wherever you like and anywhere you have an internet connection. You can replay topics and repeat whole courses as many times as you like within 12 months. It’s up to you.

After 40 years as a Chartered Accountant and more than 15 years training business people how to read and use Financial Statements, I think I’ve heard all the questions you’re likely to ask, many times, so have built the answers into these online courses in plain English. But if there is something else you want to know, please just email me (see the Contact page). My commitment to you is more than just the online courses themselves.

What Our Clients Say

Malcolm’s ability to convey complex financial information in simple terms is second to none, reflecting his deep expertise, and an engaging presentation style. I highly recommend his courses to anyone who wants to really understand their business’s financial statements, and the story they are telling. 

I recently completed the ‘Behind the Numbers’ course and found it clear and easy to follow. Malcolm has an approachable style and I enjoyed his conversational delivery and sense of humour. I really felt as though we were having a relaxed chat – which is good as numbers have never been my thing!
I can definitely recommend this course to anyone looking for a friendly, non-threatening, bite-sized way to learn about financial statements. 

The following comments were made by attendees in evaluations after Malcolm’s Australian Institute of Company Directors courses. They are genuine, unedited comments but as Chatham House Rules applies to these courses they were made anonymously and cannot be attributed to the individuals concerned.

Amazing and awesome facilitator with a difficult subject for the group. Total engagement from everyone!

The most valuable aspect of the course was having an excellent facilitator in Malcolm. He was able to transmit his knowledge into my language very well so I feel as though I learnt more on this course than I have before. Note this is my third Finance for Directors course with AICD and absolutely the best.

Excellent presentation – a wonderful day of learning from such an expert in his field!

Thanks for the excellent facilitation on Thursday, it was far and away the best finance training I’ve ever had, and definitely made me aware of the importance of examining the accounts. Jill Fagan, Manager Adaptation, Department of Environment. (quoted with special permission).

 Malcolm made it interesting and not boring. He was very knowledgeable and engaging. The case studies we covered in the afternoon, having covered the ‘theory’ in the morning gave us a great opportunity to apply the knowledge.

 Facilitator captivated everyone’s attention from 9:00am. Broke complex concepts down and spoke to them in plain English.

Similarly, the following comments were made anonymously by attendees at some of Malcolm’s workshops for CPA Australia.

I found Malcolm to be a highly engaging presenter.His was one of the best workshops I have attended at CPA in some time.

The presenter was really engaging. Malcolm introduced himself to everyone in the room individually in the morning before the presentation started. It was really lovely to see a presenter engage with everyone in the room personally.

I liked the method of delivery, the content of the training material and the sharing of insights and the ability of the facilitator in getting individual and group attention and feedback. Thanks, Malcolm. It was a real challenge to attend this course, especially during the end of financial year work peak. Surprisingly, I enjoyed the insights that I have learnt.

I thought Malcolm was very good and he engaged well with the class and made the day very interesting and interactive.

It was very good and very informative. I would love to hear more stories of different projects and how to handle the exceptions/issues.

Totally engaging workshop, providing challenges to existing practices.

Malcolm was a great presenter.

Fantastic presenter who really knows his stuff!!
