PaulLowerPaul Lower

Expert and friendly Finance Trainer

I am a finance trainer and lecturer with 25 years “sharp end” board level experience in world class media, publishing and retail companies. For more than 30 years I have trained and coached non-financial managers and business owners to help them understand the key financial principles and apply them to improve their decision making and their results.

What makes me different from other finance trainers?
My training is based on solid real-life business experience as a finance director; hands-on experience of building great companies and delivering profit and shareholder value. I focus on my areas of business experience: strategic planning and budgeting; improving cash flow and profit; negotiation; leadership and team building. I use this experience to bring my financial training courses to life with realistic business case studies and exercises.

What I do for my clients – and why they keep coming back
I create and deliver cost effective in-house courses to meet clients’ specific training objectives and give them the maximum return on investment. I create and write courses for training organisations on a wide range of business topics or to an existing course outline; I can deliver courses in most regions at competitive rates.

Managers and business owners: I can coach you on a confidential one-to-one basis to improve your decision making skills and business results; coaching sessions based on your needs.

Red Penguin helps organisations achieve their objectives by working with their people to enable them to become more efficient, more effective and more engaged.
We deliver this through training courses, facilitating workshops and leading away days and team building events.
Our clients choose us because we offer a wide range of solutions that you would expect from a large national provider but with the quality, service, attention to detail and flexibility of an SME. Typically our clients recognise that to achieve their targets they need to invest in their people.
