Financial Management Workshop - 10th October 2019

Many SME owners can find themselves running a business without any formal business qualification and subsequently lack the skills and confidence to make important business decisions. Good financial literacy is essential in any organisation and especially for SMEs that are looking to expand and compete in this increasingly complex commercial world.

Business owners who are knowledgeable and understand their finances will be able to make informed decisions about the future of their business and prepare for any challenges or opportunities that may arise.

Having good financial literacy and the skills and confidence to make important business decisions will impact your ability to raise finance, forecast accurately, scale and prevent practices which often lead to failure.
