Burgis & Bullock is strengthening its commitment to supporting the regional business community with 12 weeks of free financial training next year.
Burgis & Bullock is offering the programme to boost the regional economy after the impact of Covid-19 and Brexit on businesses.
The sessions will aim to support the development of sustainable and profitable businesses, resulting in a positive impact on the local economy.
It is designed for ambitious business owners and senior managers and will cover seven key growth drivers for business over the three months, with the first session taking place on Thursday, January 13 and the final session on Thursday, March 31.
The Financial Management for Business Owners (FIMBO) programme is being delivered in association with Virtual Finance Director.
Topics in January and February will include How to Grow Your Business, Key Performance Indicators, Quick win Cash Strategies, Improving Cash Flow, Margin/Cost Control, Customer Attrition and Gap Analysis/Cross Selling.
For the final month, Burgis & Bullock will lead on sessions around Transactions/Transaction Value, Customer Acquisition, Know Your Number, Becoming Exit Ready and Performance v Plan.
Businesses can attend single sessions or commit to all 12 weeks of training. The sessions will be delivered virtually via Zoom.
Sean Farnell, Partner at Burgis & Bullock, said: “Business owners are experts in their field but in many cases don’t really understand the key numbers that could drive their business.
“There is much more to financial operations than simply turnover, costs and cash. Having a great understanding of the key drivers could dramatically improve business results.
“We are committed to supporting our local economy and in recent years have provided a range of free advice services for businesses to help them grow, this includes our work with the Peer Networks initiative and our Business Mastermind Groups.
“We hope by delivering these free sessions it will give business owners and senior managers the knowledge they need to thrive in 2022 and, as a result, help the regional economy to rebuild.”
