October 6, 2022 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm UTC+8
Join other entrepreneurial ladies to discuss how, as women, we build and develop key business relationships.
Make friends with your numbers
Boost your confidence around the numbers side of the business. If you would like to feel more comfortable with accounting jargon and understanding the balance sheet as well as the profit and loss account, join Debbie for this introductory session. Debbie is all about making accounts really easy to understand for those with a non-financial background.
If you have any touch points with the finances within the business, and:
✳️ Admit to being “Not a Numbers Person”
✳️ Feel uncomfortable having conversations about your business’ finances
✳️ Don’t really know what some of the accounting jargon means, and
✳️ Don’t know the questions to ask. This introductory session is for you!!
You will walk away feeling more confident with:
❇️ having robust conversations about the numbers in the business,
❇️ being able to ask insightful questions,
❇️ understanding the balance sheet as well as the profit and loss account,
❇️ understanding what some of the accounting terms actually mean in plain English, and
❇️ therefore, be able to understand the story the accounts are telling you.
You know you can’t run a business without having your finger on the pulse with the numbers. This session will give you insights into the financial knowledge needed to make informed decisions so you can lead your business to greater levels of success and profits
