In partnership with Invest ESSEX, Basildon Council is hosting this two day workshop to help start-ups and small business owners understand material related to business accounting and entrepreneurial finance. In this workshop, you'll gain a basic understanding of the finance and accounting concepts which are so important in driving the success of your business.
This workshop aims to clarify the accounting language so that you are in control of the financial performance of your business, helping you forecast for the future, evaluate your current efforts, and establish strategies to meet your goals.
Accounting knowledge is still needed even if you plan to recruit an accountant as you can make better, informed decisions about your business. This workshop will enable you to have the tools necessary to have a better understanding of what the professionals are saying, so you can run your business more efficiently.
You'll learn about cash management, funding scored and book keeping basics and on day two, you'll learn about cash flow forecasting, break even analysis and variance analysis. These topics will give you the confidence and control needed when making financial decisions.
Jim Fletcher ACMA GCMA will be leading the workshop on both days. Jim is a business manager and a dedicated business coach with 40 years of commercial leadership experience.
Drawing on his long career in the manufacturing and engineering sector, Jim provides tailored coaching, consultancy, non-executive directorship and project management services, across a full range of management, finance, sales & marketing and operations functions.
