What is the workshop about?
For many people, business accounting and finance is not a captivating subject and can be a source of frustration. Whether it’s the jargon that is thrown around, a lack of training or colleagues not explaining things clearly (or too quickly), it can often lead to an unforgiving self-judgement of “I should know this”.
This workshop has been designed to cover all the basics that you are likely to need. It also will help to build your self-confidence in a subject which can sometimes be made to seem more complicated than it really is.

You will leave confident in knowing the meaning of a range of confusing terms e.g. mark-up, margin etc.. and acronyms such as EBIT, PBIT, COGS, EBITDA etc…
