This session offers an overview of finance for business and aims to get each attendee at the same level of understanding.

Naturally involving Peer Learning with the delegates being at different levels of understanding.

Who Should Attend

Aimed at SME owners, directors & senior managers with overall responsibility for managing the business. It is aimed at non-financial experts. Delegates will typically be business leaders without formal financial training, i.e. not Accountants.

What’s Covered

  • The standard business financial models of the Balance Sheet, P&L & Cashflow

  • The numerous ways of funding a business from your own cash & assets to Private Equity & Crowd-funding

  • Analysis of the financial statements & their link to strategies to improve performance

  • Related Case Studies

What Outcomes Will Be Achieved

  • Understand where they should focus for good business finance management

  • This first module will build confidence for the rest of the programme by discussing topics such as:

  • Revenue & Expenses

  • Cash, Inventory, Accounts Receivable & Payable

  • Employees/ Payroll

  • P&Lplus

  • Preparing for Tax

Success will be measured by whether or not the delegates feel by the end that they can understand the 3 main financial reports. They should be confident that they can interpret them and use them as a strategic tool to manage the business rather than just a scorecard after the event.
