Financial Management for Business Owners (FiMBO) Taster Session

31 March 2022 - Elizabeth O'Hanlon

If you don’t have a robust credit control process in place, you probably spend more time then you’d care to admit finding cash to pay your bills, which undoubtedly keeps you up late at night.

Unfortunately, it’s a situation we talk to our clients about far too often, which is why we have designed a 12-week training course specifically for ambitious business owners who want to maximise their business success to not only survive, but to thrive, grow and succeed.

The sessions will be run by qualified and experienced advisers from within our business, who all have a passion for helping businesses reach their full potential. It’s a live session, so if you have any questions or want them to discuss something in more detail you’ll be able to ask them immediately.

So if you are interested in hearing small ways that can deliver big results and enable you to concentrate on running your business, instead of worrying about its day to day operations, sign up to our Financial Management for Business Owners (FiMBO) Taster session on Wednesday 18 May at 12 noon where our team will discuss more about the topics that will be covered in the 12 week course.

And best of all? If you sign up to the full 12-week course after the session, we’re convinced that you’ll find the sessions valuable, so we offer a 100% money back guarantee. If you attend the first 4 workshops and you’re not convinced you are going to enjoy a positive ROI by implementing the suggested (low and no cost), strategies, simply let us know. Tell us what you feel the FiBMO programme is worth for your business and that is all you pay, so if you feel it is worth nothing, that is what you pay.

Find out more about the course syllabus:

1. How to grow your business

Discover how small improvements in business growth drivers can quickly build up to deliver improvements to profits and equity value.

2. Business Growth Drivers

Find out how and why focusing on Business Growth Drivers is necessary for effective management, profitability and increasing the value of your business.

3. Quick Win Cash Strategies

Identify some of the ways to generate cash, make savings and improve Return on Investment (ROI).

4. Improving Cash Flow

Managing cash in your business is like keeping a person breathing. If there’s no oxygen, the patient can’t survive, and if there’s no cash it’s the same in the business, it’s finished.

5. Rapid Profits Strategies

Before embarking on increasing sales, it is crucial to ensure margins are optimised. The easiest way to increase profit and cash returns is to optimise gross margins.

6. Customer Retention

How much attention do you give to existing customers? Maximising engagement and improving customer satisfaction results in improved retention, increased sales and more referrals.

7. Gap Analysis / Cross Selling

Creating a joined-up marketing strategy to sell across all divisions can improve business sales by as much as forty percent.

8. Transaction No. and Value

These KPI’s are important because once understood, it is possible to identify where changes to sales strategies can be made.

9. Customer Acquisition

Having worked to maximise sales and profit from existing customers, the next step is to calculate the gap left to be filled by lead generation x conversion, and hence new customer acquisition.

10. Know your Number

Step back and examine your motivation for running your business. Are you working longer than you need to? Will you have enough equity value in your business to live the life you desire?

11. Becoming Exit Ready

90% of businesses are unsellable, only 2% sell but less than 5% of those that do sell achieve their asking price. Make sure you can exit on ‘your’ terms and your time scale.

12. Performance vs Plan

With all the planning done, prepare your 5 Year 3 Way forecast and regularly report ‘Performance vs Plan’ to systematically grow your business.
