Financial Learning – The Celemi ‘Apples and Oranges’ Simulation

Put away the handouts and cancel the presentations. People learn by doing. And when you want your people to understand and apply difficult financial concepts, the best tactic is to get them to actually put those concepts to use. At LDL we use Celemi business simulations to engage delegates and deepen the learning on our financial skills courses.

Celemi Apples & Oranges™ brings financial statements to life through a physical simulation of a fictional company called A&O Inc. Participants form the incoming management team of A&O Inc, leading the company from mediocrity to excellence via a series of simulated exercises across three financial years. Through the simulation participants learn first-hand how to monitor cash flow, better utilise resources and improve productivity.

Celemi Apples & Oranges has been used by companies of all sizes around the world to increase the business acumen of their people, as well as to generate applicable business improvement insights across finance, sales, management and operations.

Whether you want your managers to improve their understanding of cash flow and balance sheets, your salespeople to become more confident using financial language, or simply to encourage more of your people to see profit improvement as part of their role, Celemi Apples and Oranges offers a route to increasing the financial understanding of your team.

The physical business simulation offers experiential learning that enables participants to gain deep business understanding. Participants then take the financial learning to the workplace and make a difference.
