May 23, 2018 | 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

This program has been pre-approved for 7.5 Business Credits for HRCI and 7.5 PDCs for SHRM.

Through this new and unique program which has enjoyed worldwide acclaim, HR professionals and other non-financial decision makers will enhance their knowledge of one of business’s most challenging topics – Finance! 

This “Executive Series” program will be led by Darrell Mullis, author of The Accounting Game, one of Amazon’s top two recommended finance books over the past 10 years and founder of MetaMark Learning. Darrell has a unique and effective way to make this topic fun and easy to learn. His objective is to help people understand how money is made at their company and how each person can improve profit and cash flow in day-to-day decisions and actions.

Darrell strongly believes HR professionals in particular need to understand finance, because of their critical role in strategically supporting executives and managers throughout the organization.

Topics covered in the program include:

  • Six principles of strategy common to all businesses
  • Purpose, structure and interrelationships of the three financial statements
  • Major principles of finance used in developing and recording the statements

About our Speaker

Darrell Mullis is co-author of The Accounting Game™ and founder of MetaMark Learning, a Boulder, Colorado training and consulting company. His programs are a unique demonstration of experiential or accelerated learning — the use of engaging games and physical activities to teach challenging intellectual topics. Darrell uses this methodology to help companies simplify and solve two of business’s most challenging problems — understanding finance for non-financial professionals and effective person-to-person communication and relationship, especially in challenging situations.

Darrell's interest in teaching finance rises from the fact that, although financial statements are over 600 years old, they are still mysterious and misunderstood by most business people. His objective has been to make learning finance clear, easy and fun so that confusion disappears in the process and participants leave engaged in making better financial decisions. This fun and simple learning style has made Darrell’s programs effective and popular around the world over the past 30 years. He is currently a highly ranked speaker in the Vistage and TEC-Canada network in North America. Other clients in recent years include Herman Miller, ABB Ltd, Turner Broadcasting, Fidelity Investments, Johnson Controls, Redpath Mining and Almatis.

Darrell enjoys the outdoors in sunny Colorado where he is an avid golfer. He also spends many happy hours with four daughters and five grandchildren.
