Penn Post


Penn Post has delivered more than 500 workshops and seminars for companies seeking to achieve their strategic and financial goals, and improve profitability, cash flow, and shareholder value. The focus of all of his workshops with non-financial participants is on building their financial knowledge and skills and gaining commitment to the client’s strategic and financial goals.

Penn Post’s seminars succeed because they:

  • Use the client’s latest financial reports and results.
  • Use a unique simplified block diagram of the company’s reporting system.
  • Make extensive use of charts and diagrams instead of detailed financial formulas and techniques.
  • Emphasize practical applications, not accounting theory.
  • Focus on current critical corporate issues
  • Show how to use financial information to improve job performance
  • Incorporate input from the client’s financial management

The author of Ten Ways to Improve Profitability, Penn teaches Financial Analysis and Managerial Accounting in the Executive Program for Scientists and Engineers at University of California, San Diego.

Prior to forming Post Associates, Penn held management positions with GE, California Computer Products, Rockwell International, and Schrello Associates. He holds an M.B.A. from the University of Southern California, and a B.S. in Engineering from the University of California, Los Angeles.

His seminars include:

  • Business Finance to Empower Manager
  • Managing for Financial Success and Shareholder Value
  • Making Decisions to Achieve Financial Success and Create Shareholder Value
  • Budgeting
  • Profit and Cash Flow Management
  • Selling Financial Benefits – A Financial Approach to Closing More Sales

A superb teacher

Once our people understood our performance measures and why they were chosen, they developed their own action plans, and are striving to achieve them.
…easily understood and organized

I’m in charge of a great many assets. I didn’t realize how important they were to our financial success.

This workshop, expressing the corporation’s needs in terms of financial strategy, is an excellent ‘hook’ for strategy deployment.
