The 60 Second Financial Review(SM) How to Read, Understand, and Act on Your Financial Statement In About One Minute

In today’s uncertain business climate, more and more managers and professionals are called on to understand financial statements, to interact with accounting and finance personnel, and to incorporate financial factors into important decisions.

This program presents a simple, straightforward, logical structure for quickly organizing your thoughts about the essentials of finance and accounting and for making effective decisions for your business.  We will present and discuss:

  • Who accountants/financial people are, how they’re organized, and what they do;
  • The four basic financial statements—income statement, balance sheet, retained earnings statement and cash flow—line by line, all questions answered;
  • The accounting process—how financial statements are created;
  • A simple, logical diagnostic process you can use to assess the situation of your company quickly and effectively;
  • How to use your diagnosis to make basic business decisions: extending credit, borrowing money, valuing a business, buying a company, and improving operations and business results.

Quality teaching makes a difference. This material will be presented interactively with stories, case discussions, examples, small group problem solving sessions and other proven accelerated learning methods. There will be some surprises! If possible, bring your own financial statements, your CPA and your management team!
