Program Description

Presenting numerical information is a communication skill, and the numbers must tell a story. Getting them right is only 10 percent of the job—just as proper spelling and grammar are a fraction of the writing challenge. This webinar will guide valuators through the steps that will turn a meaningless pile of numbers into a coherent narrative and will strengthen one’s reputation as a deep business thinker and not just a number cruncher.

Learning Objectives

After completing this webinar, attendees will be able to:

- Describe the seemingly minor decisions that can have a dramatic impact on how well numerical information is understood and how effectively numbers convey their message
- Implement a practical framework to evaluate and carry out presentation decisions specific to each valuation and financial report

Who Should Attend

CPAs, attorneys, valuation practitioners providing expert witness testimony
