Accountants seem to speak their own language that vaguely sounds like English, but often contains collections of words that have no meaning to the lay person. Phrases like “Revenue Coverage,” “Endowment Yield,” and “Zero-Based Budgeting” might as well be hieroglyphics to the non-financial person. While accounting and finance are the language of business, often times even the simplest messages can be lost in translation. This session is designed to provide practical tips to help financial and non-financial school professionals improve their communication by finding a common language to discuss the numbers.

Field of Study: Communications and Marketing
Learning Objective: Attendees will be able to apply improved communication skills to both internal and external interactions with their entire school community.
