Learn what every CEO or business owner should know about Cash Management.
Why you do it. How you do it, and some tricks of the trade.
Cash flow is a barometer of your business’ health. As long as you have cash flowing in and out of your business, you can keep the doors open for business, even if you are not profitable.
Gain a broad understanding of the basic principles and practices of cash and liquidity management and an understanding of its importance to the business.
While different market sectors have different cash flow dynamics, there are common cash management issues that affect all organizations to some degree. To prepare you for these issues the presentation examines the basic building blocks of cash management from the domestic perspective.
The presentation is delivered in a safe environment for you to ask questions and learn practical skills you can immediately apply back in the workplace. You’ll meet like-minded people and hopefully make some great contacts too.
