Financial modeling designation - Yves Seybel review

Yves Seybel

Consultant

The depth and breadth of each course are remarkable.

As an independent consultant in supply chain and business processes, several of Yves’ interactions are at C-level, specifically at CFO level and many projects involve FP&A. Coming from the non-financial world, he came to realize his weaknesses in finance and was compelled to correct them. Since taking the CFI courses, he has been able to interact with more confidence in FP&A projects and gain additional expertise!
