Why Should you Attend
Accounting and finance is supposed to be the international language of business. If so, then why do we struggle so much to make sense of the numbers? Are we so busy managing our business and leading our staff, that we don’t have time to wade through the financials, discover the trends, draw proper conclusions and take appropriate action? What if our peers, or worse, our competition understands our numbers better than we do?

In this session, Miles Hutchinson, experienced CGMA and business adviser, will explain how to quickly and thoroughly analyze the financial condition and results of operations of any publicly traded company! He will provide you with an analysis model that will help you repeat the process long after the course has faded away from memory.

  • Topic Background
    Since the beginning of commerce, businesses have struggled to manage and grow with discipline. One of the core principles is an understanding of the numbers. "How did we do last month?" "How much cash is available to finance our new project?" "Do we need to raise more capital and should we raise debt or equity?" "How profitable is a certain product or distribution channel?" "How do we determine when a product is no longer worth our efforts?" These are very important questions which require a strong understanding of their financial impacts.
