Description:

How did your business unit perform last year?  What’s the trend in your key business segments over the last three to five years?  How can this information help you identify the key things you need to focus on in the upcoming year? Do you struggle with the language of business?  How well do you understand terms like, Top Line Growth, Gross Margin, Gross Profit, Return on Capital, Liquidity, Financial Leverage, EBITDA, Cash flow from Operations, Free Cash Flow, etc.?  Grab a cup of coffee and join us to learn how to analyze the numbers and use this intel to juice up virtually every facet of your organization’s operations from sales and marketing, to finance, HR, and customer service.   Use our proven model to quickly assess the financial condition and results of operations of any business using trend and ratio analysis.  Join C-suites and business analysts from around the country and empower your team to maximize the benefit from your crystal clear understanding of the numbers. 

Background:

Since the beginning of commerce, businesses have struggled to manage and grow with discipline.  One of the core principles is an understanding of the numbers.  “How did we do last month?” “How much cash is available to finance our new project?”  “Do we need to raise more capital and should we raise debt or equity?”  “How profitable is a certain product or distribution channel?” “How do we determine when a product is no longer worth our efforts?”  These are very important questions which require a strong understanding of their financial impacts.

Why Should you Attend:

Accounting and finance is supposed to be the international language of business.  If so, then why do we struggle so much to make sense of the numbers?  Are we so busy managing our business and leading our staff, that we don’t have time to wade through the financials, discover the trends, draw proper conclusions and take appropriate action?  What if our peers, or worse, our competition understands our numbers better than we do? In this session, Miles Hutchinson, experienced CGMA and business adviser, will explain how to quickly and thoroughly analyze the financial condition and results of operations of any publicly traded company!  He will provide you with an analysis model that will help you repeat the process long after the course has faded away from memory.
