Bookkeeping Basics: Financial Records Organization

Instructors: Judy Lloyd and MJ Turton - 1/2 day session - 9:00 am - 12 noon

Bookkeeping is critical to business success. To manage the business effectively, you need timely and accurate information. How can you get the information you need to make decisions? Do you have the information to answer the questions the tax auditor is asking? Do you have the information you need to convince the banker to support you? Do you get all of this information from your present bookkeeping system?

In this workshop, you will learn how about:

  • The bookkeeping big picture - journals, ledgers, balance sheet, income statement, sales forecasts, cashflow forecasts, analysis and how they involve or affect bookkeeping.
  • Mapping out your process - paper management, systems, control accounts, reconciliation, understanding transactions, setting up a system, assessing your needs, and how you will do your bookkeeping.

The Dark Art of Pricing

Thursday, June 17, 2021 9:00 am - 12:00 pm
This event does not repeat

Businesses drive hard to build sales. They find it hard to avoid discounting and, even with discounts, they fail to “harvest” every possible sales opportunity.

We envy companies like Apple and DuPont. But these companies understand that it is more important to maximize profits than to drive recklessly towards profit-less sales. They have a pricing strategy that enables them to do just that.

Your company would be more profitable, more valuable and better able to get financing if your pricing strategy supported your business objectives.

Part 1:            Identifying a pricing problem
Part 2 :           Pricing for Profit: the numbers                 
Part 3:           Pricing and Marketing
