Making numbers talk

This webinar was recorded in October 2022

In the financial services world...there is an awful lot of language which is really the preserve of the profession which you would not use at home

Philip Collins, Founder and Writer-in-Chief, The Draft

24m, 32s - 0.5 CPD (Unstructured)

Philip Collins, Founder and Writer-in-Chief, The Draft is a former speechwriter for Tony Blair and a fund manager – meaning he understands numbers and how to translate them into words. In this talk, he explains how to turn financial analysis into clear language that everybody can understand. Learn: 

  • How to argue the case for your investment propositions clearly and concisely 
  • Who your audience is, and how to change your communication to bring them along 
  • Why sometimes the messenger is even more important than the message itself 
  • The right places to use charts and tables – and the places where they are used incorrectly
