You get lots of questions despite your explanations and you feel the audience doesn't understand you

Carlos Rodriguez, CFO at Fracttal

"From this course, I learned excellent techniques to enhance my financial presentations, starting from the basics in graphics to tips on how to be prepared to answer difficult questions. Soufyan is a teacher who listens and works with the resources from your everyday life, with the goal of enabling you to implement them easily."
Soufyan Hamid Storytelling

A training made by a Finance Professional for Finance Professionals

I am Soufyan Hamid and with my 17 years of experience in Finance, FP&A, Audit and Consulting, I've seen the same things as you

  • Prepared the same reporting

  • Delivered the same presentations

  • Worked on the same budgets and forecast

But one thing changed my career: Financial Storytelling

I looked for ways to improve my presentations and followed training about (data) storytelling, delivered a TEDx talk and joined the Toastmasters.


But something wasn't right about these: they never considered the specific aspects of finance presentations as they were all provided by people who didn't know our reality.

So I decided to take the best of these, mixed them with my experience, tested it in my presentations (yes, I took the strikes so you don't have to) and created my methodology for Financial Storytelling.

 

And after getting promotions internally, I decided to share it with all my fellow finance professionals, after having validated it with 30+ CFOs in the world

Frequently Asked Questions

When will I receive access to the course?
As soon as you proceed to payment, you’ll get instant access to the course. You should receive a series of emails from “The Finance Circle” with your activation and enrollment. Just follow the instructions and you’ll be in.
I work full-time, what is the expected time commitment?

That’s the beauty of a self-paced course: you can take the time you want or need.
I calculated 2 hours of video and around 2 hours of exercises.
But it doesn’t matter if you do it in one day (not recommended) or in 2 years (not recommended either).
My recommendation, if you accept it, is to attack the 1 section per week

Can I get reimbursed by my company?

Most companies appreciate it if employees want to improve their skills and are happy to pay for courses such as this one. To help you with requesting reimbursement, we drafted an email request you can send to your manager 

What’s the refund policy?

If until 14 days after the course completion, you don’t find the course valuable, I’ll happily refund your full payment

Do I get lifetime access?

YES, for sure. Buy once and you can access the course for life + any update I make to the course for free

Are there technical requirements?

Some exercises will be done with Microsoft Excel and PowerPoint and I can guarantee working features from version 2016.

So you should have those tools installed on your computer or access to the online version at least.

If not, Google tools could do the trick but I can’t ensure 100% of the features are present

Also, make sure to have a camera and a microphone for the final exam

How will I test my progress?

I always make sure my courses are active: quizzes, exercises, interactions and games will be there to ensure you don’t fall asleep.

But the biggest attraction will be the final exam: a presentation, face camera, of the use case you worked on during the whole training.

You’ll get access to that exclusive exercise with my personalized feedback after you have completed a major portion of the course and satisfactorily show your knowledge through the quizzes

I have more questions, who do I contact?

Simply send a mail to soufyan@soufbp.com if you have questions about the Financial Storytelling Program and I’ll answer within 48 hour
