We’ve heard great things about Colour Accounting and are delighted to offer our members significant savings on tickets to the Introduction to Accounting and Financial Statements one-day course, held on the 11th October in Central London.
What is Colour Accounting?
Colour Accounting is a uniquely effective Introduction to Accounting and Financial Statements course. It’s unique because we have a visual, colour based framework that makes accounting interactive and engaging, and it’s effective because this framework enables us to explain the structure, language and mechanics of finance in a holistic way. We know that language is one of the main barriers to understanding finance, so we focus as much on understanding financial terminology as we do on actual accounting.
What are the key benefits?
Your people develop a real financial literacy in just half a day. By first putting in place the fundamentals of how accounting works, your people are able to read and analyse financial statements more powerfully, resulting in a deeper understanding of how businesses work. They are empowered to engage in financial discussions with much more confidence, and will be able to make better financial judgements and business decisions. One recent testimonial was “This is the best accounting course I’ve ever done, and I’ve finished an MBA”.
The specific objectives of the course include:
– understand the mechanics of how accounting works, and why it matters to your business
– understand the structure of financial information
– build fluency in the language of finance
– increase your confidence in discussing financial matters with clients and colleagues
– be able to read and analyse financial reports robustly
– understand key financial metrics such as EBITDA
– understand how the accounting and business processes work at your business
– improve your ability to think commercially and understand how transactions impact both profits and cash
