Commercial acumen can make an enormous difference in your career. This webinar will explore tips and strategies for implementing the mindsets you need to develop commercial acumen and build awareness and influence as your progress through your career.

Commercial acumen is an essential career skill. It is different from financial acumen which is related to making decisions based on financial statements and monetary impact. Commercial acumen is not a ‘set and forget’ skillset. As the world around us changes rapidly, it helps if we have a mindset that helps us continually adapt and grow our commercial acumen.

This webinar explores the mindsets you need so that you can stay on the top of your commercial acumen game including a growth mindset, openness to receiving and giving feedback, and managing your time so you work ‘on’ as well as ‘in’ a business, embracing creative and innovative ways of thinking, overcoming roadblocks and the power of a mentor.  



This webinar benefits you by:

  • Helping you craft the mindsets required to continuously grow and improve your commercial acumen
  • Giving you practical tools and strategies you can use to constantly update your commercial acumen
  • Providing mindset strategies you can use when advising organisations
