As a business owner, you seet out for your business to do well financially. After all, no one reasonably sets out to fail! And yet, many businesses do fail, and mostly for financial reasons. One of the best ways to ensure success is to have a goal and plan to achieve this goal. This is where have a sound financial strategy for your business can help you succeed. It helps articulate what financial success looks like and what you are going to do to get there. Just as importantly, your business has to work for you as the business owner, earning you a fair reward and meeting your own financial objectives.
In Part 1 of this Workshop, we will work on two areas:
Your own financial goals and how this translates into the required profit form your business, and key financial metrics from your business, which you will need in order to build a strategy
In Part 2, we will work on building a financial plan for your business from the bottom up, taking into account how your business is performing now and how you plan to achieve your financial goals. You will be clear on the target financial metrics and outcomes for your business. You will also do some planning around how this performance will be achieved.
Who Should Attend This Workshop?
Business owners who want to build a financial strategy for their business and to link this with their personal financial goals. This is a highly interactive workshop, not a webinar, so participants should be prepared to engage in discussion. To get the best outcome, participants should bring a recent profit and loss statement from their business (annual accounts are ok). We are conscious finances can be a sensitive subject, so participants will not be required to reveal their ‘numbers’ to the group.
This workshop is all about building your financial strategy, so be prepared to work hard!
