After obtaining my masters degree Business Economics (MSc) at Erasmus University Rotterdam in 1988, I have gained expertise in treasury, banking, finance and project management. In 1998 I started my own financial consultancy company: Hecht Consult.
Since 2005 my major activity is to train participants who work for Banks and (Corporate) Treasury Departments. I know from practical experience that finance is not rocket science and you do not need to be a mathematical wizard to understand finance.
My training method targets to strip complex financial topics to the basic structure. The basic structure will support participants to understand and use finance in their future work practice. I have trained hundreds of participants, and many have different backgrounds and finance experience - for example: chartered accountants, controllers, journalists, consultants, IT professionals, and University graduates.
