Cashflow Forecasting for Existing Businesses


Is your business ready for 2020?

Date: 24 March
Time: 9:30am-3:30pm
Venue: Holiday Inn, Brook Street, Brentwood CM14 5NF

Hosted by BEST Growth Hub and delivered by Anglia Ruskin University

This FREE workshop focuses on cash flow management and its use as a management tool. Brexit uncertainty spills over in volatility and unknowns for companies’ revenues and costs. Therefore, this training supports businesses in forecasting and evaluating the impact of changes to their cash flows on their financial performance.

This will enable Essex businesses to prepare for different Brexit scenarios, incorporating the “what if” analysis and stress any proposal to its limits. A well-structured financial model can facilitate and improve the reliability and quality of a firm’s decision making.

The workshop will cover the following topics:

1. Generate Business Forecasts and measure their accuracy
2. Understand and interpret cash flows and learn how to improve them
3. Project the balance sheet and profit and loss account based on cash flows
4. Incorporate risk, optimisation and forecasting into business models
5. Produce meaningful management reports and charts for communication
