We know delegates are likely to be at different levels when it comes to their understanding of finance for business.

That’s why we’ve tailored this session to naturally involve Peer Learning. There’s real benefit in working collaboratively in pairs or small groups to discuss concepts or find solutions to problems.

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&L

    • Preparing for Tax

Success will be measured by whether or not the delegates:

  • Feel by the end that they can understand the three main financial reports: Balance Sheet, P&L & Cashflow; and
  • Are confident that they can interpret these reports and use them as a strategic tool to manage the business rather than just a scorecard after the event
