Understanding Finance: How will it help me?
How will it help me?
The main focus for this workshop will be to introduce and explain the fundamental financial planning and understanding. Also Core Financial Statements of the Profit & Loss, Balance Sheet and Cash Flow will be explained and used as an illustration for wider commercial and financial thinking.
Depending on your financial knowledge, we recommend you attend the Understanding Finance workshop in the first instance before signing up for any of the other modules, as this covers the basics. The other four modules do assume a basic level of financial knowledge, which is imparted during Understanding Finance.

• Understanding the Balance Sheet
• Working Capital Management
