Financial Boot Camp

Financial Boot Camp is a three-class series designed to teach basic financial principles, demystify financial jargon, and provide a competitive advantage for non-financial professionals. Take one, two or all three seminars and gain financial knowledge you can use in the workplace.

Each seminar is taught by Diane Renihan, founder and principal of Ballantrae, LLC, an advisory firm providing interim, high-level CFO services to small- and medium-sized companies. Diane has more than 20 years of experience as a finance and accounting professional and has served as CFO of several dynamic, rapid growth companies – both public and private.

Finance, like HR, is one of those critical areas where many founders/CEOs and executives lack expertise and interest. Diane’s “boot camp” approach makes learning the financial workings of any organization simple and fun. It’s timely and practical and I recommend it for anyone operating in today’s business environment!” – Shannon Swift, Swift HR Solutions

Financial Boot Camp provides much more than just financial theory. Real world examples bring financial basics to life and make it relevant to your everyday job responsibilities. And Diane knows how to explain complex financial concepts in readily understandable and practical ways!

Who should attend? Non-financial professionals looking to learn the “language” of finance. Looking to enhance your financial acumen and make yourself more relevant/invaluable in your current position? Financial Boot Camp can help level the playing field when partnering with financial executives and help you contribute to your organization’s profitability.

What will be covered? Financial Boot Camp covers key topics focused on:

Financial Fundamentals: Learn basic financial concepts and terminology. Seminar materials include a glossary of terms and acronyms to build a foundation in the “language” of finance. This is a prerequisite for the other two seminars.
