Feedback from the April Workshop
A really good overview of Financial aspects, useful for Business owners. Some really good tools to be able to properly manage the Business.
Great for individuals starting their own business and requiring guidance. Good to be able to ask specific questions to each business. Useful for small companies looking to gain Financial knowledge.
It is an excellent Workshop. The workshop gives you the framework and systems to implement in your business to manage your business finances, and control growth effectively. Frameworks and specific systems to my business were explained. Thank you very much.
Excellent value and with quality content. With a knowledgeable host. Don’t eat beforehand there are plenty of sandwiches available.
Great overview and introduction to business financial management & planning. It definitely opened my eyes to a lot of things that I might have previously thought did not apply to a company as small as mine. Very relevant to the companies present.
