Training overview

Artificial intelligence (AI) makes it possible for machines to learn from experience, adjust to new inputs and perform human-like tasks. Most AI examples that you hear about today from chess-playing, computers to self-driving cars, rely heavily on deep learning and natural language processing. Using these technologies, computers can be trained to accomplish specific tasks by processing large amounts of data and recognising patterns in the data.

To capitalise on the value automation could bring to your business, you need the ability to appreciate its implications and the confidence to apply it in your teams and organisations.

This programmes addresses challenges and common misconceptions surrounding AI and will equip and encourage you to
embrace AI as part of a transformative toolkit. With a focus on the organisational and managerial implications of these technologies, rather than on their technical aspects, you’ll leave this course armed with the knowledge and confidence you need to pioneer its successful integration in business.

Why you cannot miss this conference

Real leadership begins and ends with the brain.  It always has. This Neuro-leadership programme offers you a comprehensive view of leadership. It provides an opportunity to acquire essential neuro skills:  how to apply powerful science based strategies for achieving peak performance for yourself and employees, at all levels of your business.

With access to the latest neuroscience technology we can look inside the brain and show you where reason and emotion part ways, often leading to the collapse of leading companies. You will learn from South African subject matter authorities who work in real neuroscience laboratories and environments and have earned the right to be called experts in the field. All of them have applied their experience to the corporate world successfully straddling two environments: business and the brain.

 Join us on a journey that that begins with brain science to consistently achieve peak performance and create high performance teams.  Be introduced to our technology and tool box, which we believe is leading the continent and in many ways leading the world.

Strategic takeaways

  • How is brain research changing the way leadership and success is viewed
  • How Neuroscience will make you a better Leader
  • How to tap into the limitless potential of the staff you lead
  • Why Neuroscience is the KEY to Innovation in Artificial Intelligence
  • Assessing the HEALTH RISK OF LEADERS through genetic assessments

Training overview

This intensive and highly practical workshop will teach delegates how to design and construct and then effectively use robust financial models, using the unique branded system developed by Gerald Strever, the “Financial Modelling Quadrant system.

The four Quadrants are:

  • Identifying the Drivers of the intrinsic value of the company
  • Model the Financial Statements – Balance Sheet, Income Statement and Cash Flow
  • Model the Sensitivity of the intrinsic value of the company by flexing the Drivers
  • Simulate the possible variability of the intrinsic value of the company using Monte Carlo Simulation

This is a Research-Based Training Course: the course curriculum has been developed and designed from research with actual industry practitioners and will in just 2 days give you all the tools and techniques needed to move from basic techniques to becoming a “blackbelt” in Financial Modelling. Other courses in the market cover only one Quadrant – the Financial Statements.

All the topics covered will include hands-on exercises and delegates will each receive a free CD-ROM containing all the exercises plus the Excel Add-lns for the Risk Simulation and Sensitivity Exercises, plus a User Defined Function, XMIRR, created by the workshop trainer.

By the end of the course delegates will be able to
