Why Gamification Matters

Finance can be intimidating, especially if you don't have a background in it. We've taken a creative approach to make finance engaging, accessible, and even fun for non-finance managers.

We've combined the best of gaming and finance to create an interactive learning experience that demystifies financial concepts.

Customized vs. Traditional Training

Learning finance without context is like taking a horse to water but not letting it drink. 

When your staff learn finance and see how it applies in their environment it immediately becomes practical and relevant leading to real change. 

Unlock the key to financial confidence at your company

Non-Finance Managers Need Help

Non-finance managers often feel frustrated and overwhelmed. In many instances they're completely untrained for the financial responsibility that their job entails and that their lack of core financial knowledge is holding them back.

‚ě°ÔłŹ¬† They¬†struggle to understand¬†P&L's and business numbers
‚ě°ÔłŹ¬†They have a hard time making sound financial decisions
‚ě°ÔłŹ¬†They lack the confidence to have financial conversations & feel threatened by financial jargon

How's it Different?

Most finance training doesn't work because:

‚ĚƬ† It's lecture-based and jam packed with jargon.
‚ĚƬ†¬†It's focused on rote-learning, so¬†students never learn the why.
‚ĚƬ†¬†It's overwhelming, with too many irrelevant concepts.
‚ĚƬ†¬†It's delivered by finance heads who can't relate to people who have a fear of finance.

Our finance training works because:

‚úÖ It's delivered by an accountant with a personality
‚úÖ It's interactive
‚úÖ It's gamified
‚úÖ It's experiential
‚úÖ It's practical
‚úÖ It's fun
