"I found the Accounting Fundamentals seminar to be an eye opener. As an example, I learnt that when an expense is
being treated under sales expense versus capital expense it would result in a completely different set of books. The simpleillustrations and explanations made it easy to understand."
Ms. Alice Low, Individual, Singapore.

"The Accounting Fundamentals seminar provided me with the wider perspective on how bankers evaluate the financial performance and health of a company, in terms of funding. From another view as an investor, I can also use the knowledge gained to study a listed company's financial ratios before investing in them. Last but not least, it also provided me another tool for decision making as an entrepreneur. Well done "
