TalkFinancials was established by Ted Wainman.  Ted trained and qualified as an Associate Chartered Accountant (ACA) with Ernst & Young before joining JPMorgan on the Investment Management side of the business.  Whilst at JPMorgan, he undertook a company sponsored MBA in the International Management of Financial Services, from which he graduated at the top of his class with merit.

Since 2003 Ted has been designing, developing and delivering programmes for private sector companies (including blue chips and financial services) across a range of business needs.  Whether focussed on programmes to build awareness and detailed understanding around financial drivers of their business, addressing new operational initiatives or supporting business change, Ted is experienced in working with key stakeholders within the business to construct a training program that delivers sustained change.


At TalkFinancials our aim is to help individuals in corporate organisations understand the financial implications of their day to day operational decisions.  While accounting - the process of identifying, measuring and communicating financial information - is left to the accountants, managers must be comfortable with being able to read and interpret that financial information.  Here at TalkFinancials our consultants help delegates learn the 'language of commercial finance' and to become more comfortable when communicating financial concepts, to use financial data when presenting operational plans and to be able to understand the financial implications of their day to day decisions.

Brilliant course!! Not just my view but I think everyone really enjoyed it and got a lot out of the day. I thought the trainer was excellent. He managed to articulate the very complex financial market environment into a very understandable and digestible presentation.
