Finance For Business: Beyond The Basics

September 25, 2018 from 1:00 pm to 4:00 pm

This half-day course is a “Beyond The Basics” course for those who either have the “Fundamentals of Finance” down already or have taken our Finance for Business Level 1: Fundamentals course. This is an additional offering to the Financial Fitness programme of the Chamber, and is designed to deliver next level financial tools and techniques with a FUN spin on business finance.

This afternoon course directly follows the “Finance Fundamentals for Business” course which takes place in the morning as part of a Finance Management back-to-back offering.

Who will benefit from this workshop?

  • Managers and business leaders who have (or will in the future) responsibility for managing some costs.
  • Non-financial advisors who talk to businesses about business plans and prepare justifications for funding or grants, and so need to understand the fundamentals of where the relevant information is found.
  • Anyone involved in managing costs and predicting the future development of those costs

As a result of participating in this workshop, delegates will learn:

  • Which costs are fixed and which are variable
  • How to calculate breakeven
  • How to control different types of costs
  • The principles of pricing and mark-ups
  • How to prepare a budget or forecast

About the workshop

The workshop is presented by the animated, entertaining, and intellectual – Ian Ross. This finance course will be presented without jargon and without PowerPoint. Previous delegates have commented: “very clear and easy to understand”, “fun, interactive and thought-provoking”

This is the second in the Financial Fitness programme. The principles of profit and loss account, balance sheets and cash flow are covered in the Level 1 course. If you understand these already, then the Level 2 course is a good place to start!
