This course is designed for business owners, managers, accountants, bankers (commercial lenders and their staff) and consultants who have limited knowledge of financial statements and how to use them effectively.

In this three-hour session, we’ll show you how to turn financial statements into useful management tools. We’ll take a close look at where cash comes from in a small business, where it’s used in day-to-day operations and how to identify and correct cash flow problems. At the end of the session, you’ll be able to identify key information on cash flow statements and be able to follow the path of cash as it travels through your company.

As you examine actual case studies, you’ll identify cash flow strategies that you can use in your organization. You’ll become familiar with the sources and uses of cash, ratios and the most common “gobblers” of cash in any business.

This is information you can take back to your business and use right away. This isn’t theory – its practical application for real businesses – like yours!
