Black Country Chamber start-up finance workshop

The Black Country Chamber of Commerce is holding a start-up finance workshop on Wednesday 12 October.

As a start-up business owner the financial aspect of your business can seem a little scary, especially if you have no background in finance or accounting so this workshop is designed to help.

It will give an insight into understanding balance sheets, profit and loss accounts, and cash flow management. The guest speaker is Richard Ashmore from Altus Business Consulting Ltd.

The workshop will take place from 10am until 12pm at the Black Country & Marches Institute of Technology, Zoological Drive in Dudley.
