Understanding Basic Accounting: What You Really Need To Know

Jun 24, 2021

8:30 am - 10:30 am

Arizona Commerce Authority, 100 N. 7th Avenue, Phoenix AZ - First Floor Conference Center

You’ve Started Your Dream Business … How Can You Understand and Manage All Those Numbers?

 

You are an Entrepreneur, working in your company every day, all day. You know how to find customers, deliver your product and get your invoices paid. You know how to source your vendors, get them to deliver quality and then get them paid. So why do you need to understand Accounting? The world is full of bookkeepers and accountants whom you can pay to do this work for you, right?!

Well, your business, like everyone else’s is unique. You cannot expect a contracted professional to really understand your company like you do. Understanding fundamentals will allow you to ask the right questions and keep you from getting into trouble. Moreover, it’s your baby. Why do you want to trust someone else to get it right; don’t you need to know how to check the numbers?

 

Join us for this workshop, along with Michael D'Hoostelaere, who has over 45 years of experience in marketing, strategic planning, and business development and is certified to teach Profit Mastery. He has taught this course to over 400 small and mid-sized businesses (SMBs) and is trained to use the financial models of Sageworks called Profit Cents, with which he analyzed historic and projected performance for literally hundreds of firms.

 

Time:  8:30 am - 10:30 am (registration from 8:00 - 8:30)

Cost:  $49.00 (includes continental breakfast)

OSHA Safety Workshop: What to Expect if OSHA Knocks on Your Door

Jul 14, 2021

8:30 - 10:30

Arizona Commerce Authority 100 N. 7th Ave., Phoenix, AZ 85007 / 1st Floor Conference Center

Are you ready if OSHA shows up at your company? Many companies fear the day when OSHA shows up at their location. Not necessarily because they have something to hide, but perhaps the lack of understanding of what the employer should do during the OSHA Inspection - what OSHA will ask for and what to expect during the visit.

At this workshop, you will learn what to expect at the opening and closing conferences and what OSHA is looking for as they inspect your facility. This event is a great precursor to the OSHA 30 event that is taking place in October.

 

Time: 8:30AM-10:30AM (Registration is from 8:00 - 8:30)

Cost:  $49.00 (Coffee, pastries & fruit provided)
