Why You Should Take These Courses


Practical, Interesting & Engaging

Developed specifically for IR and corporate communications by FinanceTalking, NIRI's financial training courses are designed to help you understand the specific financial concepts you need to communicate your company's financial story effectively. Courses are available on a variety of topics and learning levels.

Courses are 4 hours long with two 15-minute breaks and are offered at times convenient for both east and west coast participants.


Materials & Post-Course Support

In addition to the live four-hour training, you will take away:
  • Access to a virtual classroom with an additional series of online courses to help you consolidate your learning (including briefing papers & jargon summaries)
  • Color-coded course materials
  • A copy of the FinanceTalking Financial Glossary (pdf)
  • Email or phone your tutor if you have questions or you’d like to discuss further any concepts covered on the course


An Engaging Experience Using Simple Technology
