Funding with #NatWestboost Understand your business numbers and improve your cash flow

Taking the plunge and starting a business can be an exciting yet terrifying prospect. The good news is there’s a wealth of useful and inspiring information available, not least from those who have been there and done it already.

Ask a business owner to describe the early days of launching a business and you’ll generally receive the same response. A mix of superlative statements – “It was the hardest but most rewarding year of my life” – combined with awed incredulity at how they managed to pull it all off. But for new entrepreneurs not blessed with hindsight or a crystal ball, preparing a business for launch can feel overwhelming – and expensive.

•Resolving working capital issues can be difficult for larger companies

•It’s important to make and update forecasts on a regular basis so any changes in circumstances can be taken into account

•New technology will help companies to access better cash-flow tools to maximise their returns and minimise working capital issues

So how can you get your business up and running successfully and maintain this, we will take you through the various ways you can access funding and finance to begin this journey.

Event outline:

Understanding working capital issues

The importance of making and updating forecasts on a regular basis

Using new technology cashflow tools

How to access funding

What will the speaker cover

In the workshop we are going to cover:

  • About the Balance Sheet

  • About the Profit & Loss statement

  • About the Statement of Cashflows

  • How to work out a Break-Even point

  • How to do a Cash Flow Forecast

  • …and How to make more money for clients – Quick Wins!

Money is a far more emotionally loaded topic than most people realize. Your feelings and how you relate to money can affect your decisions and your financial success.

Register and learn how to have greater confidence in decisions, take better ones. How to make logic-based implications of choices. Have a greater awareness of abilities, a proper examination of issues, effective billing, collecting & paying, and most importantly improved cash flow.

Back to basics, a finance MasterCLASS that will empower your business.

Personal Attributes

Khalil took over his responsibilities to lead the whole country instead of a single area; under his leadership, grew the business from £6.3M in 2007 to £33.2M when he left in 2017. He was up to the challenge, during tough economic downturn he retained two of his major accounts, acquired new ones, tapped into unthought off niches, rebuilt the operation, and underwent exponential growth. This achievement was only possible as a result of the fantastic team that supported him. He injected fresh recruits and sought specialised talents that helped him fortify the operation and provide a unique offering.

Khalil's Approach

To understand your goals and what do you want to achieve is the first steps to commencing our work together. Putting an action plan for the journey, broken down into five years, three years, one year, and most importantly the next ninety days would set a path for our mission, and validate every milestone we embark on achieving. A simple checklist to confirm and reconfirm our successes.
