5 Cashflow Secrets Every SME Should Know - Workshop

Every business exists by turning assets into profit and profit into cash. The key to good business management is to facilitate that cycle so it runs smoothly and rapidly. At the heart of this cycle is cashflow - what cash comes into and goes out of the business, and what is left in the bank at any one time.

Experience has shown that no matter how profitable a business is, or whether sales are growing, failure to successfully manage cashflow will result in an unsustainable business.

Presented by Annika Dickey, Chartered Accountant and CEO at Whitelaw Weber, this workshop will explore some of the common money mistakes:

  • Overspending during the first few years of business

  • Overestimating business revenue

  • Not having a budget and reviewing it

  • Not staying on top of invoices and debtors

  • Not having a cash cushion for the unexpected

  • You will come out of this workshop understanding:

  • How to measure cashflow

  • What actions you need to take to maintain a healthy cashflow

  • Warning signs

We welcome clients and non-clients - there is no obligation and no sales pitch - just the opportunity to learn something new.

Take Back Control - Workshop

Did you know:

  • 95% of divorces are caused by a "lack of communication"

  • The average working person spends less than 30 seconds a day in meaningful communication with their children

  • The average person gets 1 interruption every 8 minutes - that's more than 50 each day

  • 20% of the average working day is spent on "important things" while 80% is spent on things that have little or no value

  • 60% of meeting attendees take notes to appear as if they are listening

So why do so many of us continue to spend our precious time in ways that are unproductive, contrary to our values and goals and are often detrimental to our health and relationships?

We have negotiated a complimentary mini-workshop based on the hugely successful Time Toolbox Programme, run by Sarah Greener, Business Coach. In this mini-workshop Sarah will teach you:

  • The value of time in relation to your personal and business lifestyle

  • How to carve out 5 hours in your week to use how you want

  • How to successfully manage interruptions

We welcome clients and non-clients - there is no obligation and no sales pitch - just the opportunity to learn something new.

EMPLOYERS: Your guide to Christmas & Holidays - WORKSHOP

Holidays and Christmas in particular, is a challenging time for employers as employees take annual leave, just as holiday makers start spending up large on everything from accommodation to paddle boards.

The key to managing employees over the holiday period is preparing in advance and understanding the regulations around leave, shift work, wages, entertainment and gifting. This ensures you are adequately staffed during periods of high demand and your team are informed and well rested after a busy year.

This informative workshop covers these key regulations as well as providing an opportunity to talk with our employment specialist, April Jenkin.

We welcome clients and non-clients - there is no obligation and no sales pitch - just the opportunity to learn something new.
