Finance & Accounting for
The Creative Industry
When you look at your agency’s financial statements, do you know what the numbers mean, where they come from and what impact they have?
An essential understanding of financial fundamentals is critical to agency owners and managers. This workshop guides those without a financial background from accruals to write-offs to receivables and payables. We will cover concepts, tools and techniques that can help make every decision pay off – for each job, client and the agency’s bottom line.
The objective of this workshop is to present the nuts and bolts of finance and accounting in a way that will have immediate practical significance. This includes how to analyze financial statements, using ratios to analyze overall agency performance, and analyzing agency cost information.
After attending this workshop, managers will be able to:
- Evaluate and measure an agency’s profitability
- Interpret financial reports to make better-informed decisions
- Develop and manage an agency budget
- Understand the financial ratios needed to make informed decisions
Participants will leave the workshop with a practical reference guide, a glossary of business/financial terms and the knowledge needed to develop the practical accounting and finance skills that are key in business management.
