Are you a small business owner or finance manager who is responsible for managing your organisation’s day-to-day cashflow? Would you like to learn useful skills, which help you adopt positive new habits relating to cash management and support the smooth running of your business finances? If you would, this session is not to be missed.

Cash is vital for businesses to thrive. Managing cashflow effectively is essential - not only to ensure you’re able to cover day-to-day outgoings, but also to help you plan ahead in the longer term.

Understanding your businesses true cash position is vital, especially during challenging times like these. While many agree that turnover should not be the primary focus of financial control, there is often confusion when drawing a distinction between ‘profit’ and ‘cash’.

In this engaging session, we will explore the meaning of both terms and examine the key differences between them and take a closer look at various ways a small business should manage its cash on a day-to-day basis.
