Masterclass Seminar 

Following the success of last year's masterclass, Caroline Kirrane from Trinity Business School returns for the next edition of this practical workshop giving participants an introduction to basic finance and accounting principles while demystifying financial concepts for leaders who don't have an accountancy training or a financial background.

If you would like to have a better grasp of your numbers and be able to ask the right questions while contributing confidently to financial discussions and decision making, this is the learning opportunity for you.

This practical workshop, which includes two mini case studies, will focus on the following important areas:`

Recap of the three financial statements (P&L account, balance sheet, cash flow statement) and the key questions to ask to get an in-depth understanding of them.

Working capital management - components of working capital and best practices in managing cash flows, understanding how to spot and avoid overtrading.

Capital budgeting and project appraisal - tools for allocating capital for long-term investment, Net Present Value, Internal Rate of Return, payback period etc.
