Host: University of Derby

Location: Online

Cost: FREE


Monday, 26th July 2021 at 10:00am - 12:00pm

Take a deeper dive into the finances of your organisation, and learn how to make the most of your financial data when making decisions. Discover how you can improve the performance of your business, using the wealth of information already at your fingertips.

What will I learn?

The workshop will look at the analysis and interpretation of financial statements, the profit and loss account and balance sheet. During the session you will learn the answer to questions such as:

  • What is a ‘statement of profit or loss and other comprehensive income’
  • What is a ‘statement of financial position’
  • What do these statements show and how can we make sense of them?
  • What can we understand about the business from their analysis?
  • You will then go on to using key financial ratios to help with our interpretation of the what the figures mean.

What does it cost to attend?

The workshop is part of our Enscite programme which is funded by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF). This means the workshop is fully funded and offered without any cost to your organisation.
