Business Finance Training
Developing your understanding of the financial performance of your business is critical to its success and survival.
What is business finance training?
As your business grows, so must the ways in which you manage your finances.
Many business owners find that as their business gets out of that startup phase, they actually don't have an accurate financial picture of what they're achieving each month. This means that they often don't know if their business is actually making money or not!
That's why financial visibility is such a crucial ingredient for a business’ and entrepreneur’s success. As with all planning, financial planning significantly increases the likelihood of you achieving your overall business goals, and can also help you mobilise and allocate resources appropriately.
While not everyone takes to finance like a fish to water, the right business finance coaching and training programs will be the key to helping you understand top-level how to optimise your core financial drivers to ensure that you have the cash to do what you want (and need) in your business.
What are the signs you need a finance coach?
Lack of visibility
Do you know how much money is coming in? How much is being spent on expenses or tax? If you don’t have full and easy visibility on your numbers, the right finance training could help you gain a 360 view of exactly what's going on in your businss and where it can get to.
Is it a business expense or a personal expense? Do you have systems in place to categorise and capture these transactions? If you’re feeling constantly confused, finance training can help you understand these metrics and concepts, and create systems to track them.
Loss of control
Are you constantly doing everything, and still falling behind? Are mistakes being made but you're not sure from where? A key part of business finance training is accepting that you don’t know everything, and seeking proven and experienced guidance.
How can our business finance training help you reach your goals?
Our business finance training will help you build your skillset, confidence and most importantly, reach your goals as a business.
Tracking financial performance
Our training will give you the knowledge and tools to accurately track financial performance and cash positions. You’ll be empowered with a 360 view of where your business stands and how it's performing.
Tracking past performance is one thing, but being able to plan for the future is another. Our training will help you combine your strategic plan, KPI’s, targets, recruitment timeline and resourcing plan into one central model, so that you can see what the financial performance and cash position of your business will be for the next 12 - 18 months.
Managing finances and cash
Particularly in the development stages of your business, it’s crucial that you get on top of financial management and cash management quickly. Our business finance training will give you the tried and tested methods to manage your cash flows effectively.
Operations and resourcing
A cornerstone of good financial management is acknowledging when to seek third party assistance for more specialist tasks. Our training programs will give you the frameworks to operate your finances efficiently, and some proven criteria to help you select the right third party, whether it be an accountant or a financial advisor, for your business.

What will our finance coaches teach you?
The first rule of finance is that it should always be done in collaboration with people who can do it far better than you. So, who's managing the finances of your business? If you're the key decision maker, you need to ensure your finances are in qualified hands.
What kind of financial projections do you have in your business? Do they empower you and hold you accountable to your numbers, or do they leave you confused?
You might be growing, but are you growing profitably? In business, profit is king. So you will need to know how you are generating profit, and develop a path to make even more of it.

How two veterans became serial 7-figure entrepreneurs
Peter Liston and Matthew Moseley met in the army over 12 years ago, forming their first business together, Secure Windows. Their army training and experience gave them the initial idea to start the business, as well as strong acumen for operations and planning, but no one had taught them how to successfully manage the finances behind running a business. They knew that they needed training and guidance to help them systemise their finances, and gain true visibility over performance.
Peter and Matt joined the Accelerate program in 2017. With the backing of their coach and the knowledge gained from the various training programs available, Pete and Matt grew Secure Windows to $3 million in revenue, with a staff of 25, all within 9 months of joining The Entourage.
Peter and Matt were acknowledged for Secure Windows’ success in 2018, when they won the Veteran’s Employer Of The Year, for small to medium-sized businesses.
