Do you know how your business works? We would hope so, but we’re all guilty of blagging it every now and again. A lot of entrepreneurs start off by winging it – they’ve got a product to sell or they’ve got the contacts to use – understanding the nitty-gritty isn’t a priority. Although, if you’re thinking about growing your business in the future, you’re going to have to get familiar sooner or later. We suggest sooner.


At this month’s networking event we are looking at how to focus on the right problems and find solutions that work long-term. Rather than patch-jobs that keep things ticking over, we’re here – or rather Matchbook Associates is here – to help you develop the understanding needed for a smooth operation.


This session is right for you if you’re interested in the following:

  • Understand your business performance by using the right metrics
  • How to choose which employees to involve in financial operations
  • How the 5 key drivers of business work together to effect business performance
  • Improved understanding of cashflow, profit & loss, assets and balance sheets

In light of the growing concern around the Coronavirus (COVID-19) we must ask that if you have travelled from China, South Korea, Hong Kong, Iran, Japan, Macau, Malaysia, Singapore, Taiwan, Thailand or specified areas in Italy within the last 14 days that we will unfortunately have to ask you not to attend our campus for the event.  If this affects you then we do hope you understand and would ask you to please get in touch with teampropeller@uclan.ac.uk and we will ensure that any relevant event resources are sent on to you.
