Uncertain about Cash Flow? Confused by your accountant? Struggling with your business model? Apprehensive about VAT?
Too many entrepreneurs fail to start, fail to raise finance or start and then fail - all because of the numbers.
So come along to a ‘Get Cash Flow Confident’ workshop in London, a practical and stress-free way to get the financial knowledge, confidence and tools you need to develop a winning business model and understand the language of finance.
The Get Cash Flow Confident workshop is based on a three phased approach to your learning: Understanding the numbers, Learning to Forecast and Tips on Managing for Growth. Here is a brief overview on what’s covered:
- We cover the key financial reports i.e. Profit & Loss, Cash Flow and Balance Sheet and how they fit together.
- Essential knowledge like the different types of profit, how to calculate break even and the importance of gross profit margin.
- And we cover the biggest cause of confusion - why profit isn’t the same cash!
- The main principles of forecasting and budgeting – often an area of considerable stress and anxiety.
- How to forecast sales and the importance of sensitivity analysis.
- How to use the Excel forecasting model
- Company administration like basics of VAT, Accounting systems and managing working capital
- Different trading formats e.g. sole trader v limited company

“Great session on accounting and financials with Johnny Martin – highly engaging and recommended!”
“I just wanted to say a huge ‘thank you’ for last night’s session at the BL. It was unbelievably useful – I had a few real ‘eureka!’ moments, and have been completely consumed by revamping my financial models all morning. I can’t get over how satisfying it is to see the numbers finally making sense, they’d been in such a muddle until now there’s no wonder I’ve let my business plan drag on for 3 months! Off to meet my first funder now, I just got one of their level 1 grants!”
“I attended your finance session on the 8th February at the British Library. Thank you for your energetic and high spirited delivery of a dry subject. You brought it to life and took the fear factor out”
“Great session with Numbers Coach this morning! Helping to de-mystify the dreaded accounting.”
“I was recently at an event in London and heard Johnny Martin speak. He spoke for 45 mins and managed to cover in 45 mins what I it took 2 days to cover in a business school course. He is straight to the point and cuts out all the waffle and deals with the essentials. This is so important for time poor business owners and senior team members.”
“Dear Johnny, thank you very much for the slides and the above information and especially the session last week.”
“Great session on accounting and financials with Johnny Martin – @NumbersCoach – highly engaging and recommended!”

“Johnny Martin’s ‘Understanding your business finances’ is a fantastic introductory guide to business finance that takes you through a lot of difficult concepts in a friendly manner. It is accessible, easy to read and packed with great information and knowledge that can be applied directly to a real business.”

Angel News – Workbook Review
“I must admit, I hadn’t honestly given your spreadsheet template the attention it deserved. It’s bloody brilliant. Sorted my p&l, cash flow, balance sheet etc in just an hour or so. Thanks so much!”
