Certified Numbers Coach™ Program

Chet Buchman, founder of the Certified Numbers Coach(TM) Certification program, has learned over the years that the majority of his team members are bilingual - they speak both Numbers and English. He has also found that many of the clients are bilingual as well, but instead speak Entity (business or non-profit) and English. In this immersive course, Chet will provide attendees with tools and techniques to help clients translate their numbers to English in a way that is easy to understand, allowing the development of actionable insights.
