SETsquared Workshop: Financial modelling for high growth businesses


Speakers: Jonathan Gaunt and Stuart Budd, FD Works



The workshop is aimed at managers and owners of growing businesses who are looking to build a robust financial plan that models the growth of their business and allows them to make, with confidence, the right commercial decisions. 



We'll show you how to....

  • Identify and model the core drivers of your business underpinning your growth
  • Build a financial model that is scalable as you grow using the FAST modelling methodology
  • Forecast cash burn rates so you can be prepared for further funding requirements

....and we'll share a simple model for you to take away and use!



This interactive session will give you the tools you need to make bold business decisions!  We will take you through a FAST model and explain the methodology and how to update for your own business.


For the last five years, FD Works has been helping businesses make bold commercial decisions by putting you in control of your numbers to realise the true potential of your business.
