This creative cashflow course uses an enjoyable framework that enables delegates to build a usable template for managing their cash and planning for future events and activities. Common issues are addressed through discussion of real situations that take account of delegates primary need to turn their innovative and creative ideas into reality through a healthy enterprise.

The rationale of how an enterprise creates, delivers and captures value is made central to the process of building a picture of income and expenditure for the enterprise through a creative and relevant cashflow forecast. Taking a workbook approach supported by online, facilitator led activities, delegates will be given information relevant to the creative industries and build an interactive template that is both relevant to their enterprise and will enable delegates to easily keep careful control of income and expenditure – to avoid any unwelcome surprises.

This course is complemented by the Creative Pricing Programme
