NMD Business Growth Programme – 2 Workshops in September 2019

The ‘Getting to Grips with your Business Finance’ workshop will take place on Tuesday 17th September 2019 in Newry and Mourne Enterprise Agency and on Wednesday 18th September 2019 in Down Business Centre.

As well as the practical help and insights around managing the finances of your business, participants will also have the opportunity to meet with others who face the same challenges, to collaborate and to build better networks for the future. As if often the case that in a small business a finance manager will have a multitude of roles and that can be daunting. It can be hard to work your way through the maze of technical terms and systems, all of which are important but some of which you may not be familiar with. With the right kind of help the basics can be explained quickly and simply, and that is what this workshop sets out to do.

How will my business benefit? 

This workshop will introduce you to the key areas of finance including:

  • Understanding Profit & Loss, Balance Sheet & Cash Flow statements
  • How to set a price for your products/services
  • The best systems for recording and reporting your financial data
  • Understanding what are the critical numbers you should monitor

The workshop is part of the Newry, Mourne and Down Business Growth Programme. The workshops of the programme are open to any business located in the council area. Businesses can register to attend here:
