Belfast South and Belfast City branches held a "Maximising
Cashflow" event on Thursday 2 May which was very kindly hosted by Allister
Mulligan of Desk Warehouse. The event
was attended by more than 40 members who were keen to understand how to improve
their business cashflow.
The main speaker for the event was James McGovern of Charis
Consultancy and Finance who focussed on identifying the different types of
funding available, funding bodies and more importantly how to develop a
Business Plan that would help to secure the funding identified.
Feedback from the members was extremely positive with over
90% agreeing that the topic and presenter were either good or excellent. In fact, the presentation was so good that it
is likely that we will host this event again in the Autumn in the North Down

all converged to make this a very attractive event for members".
Our next event will focus on the other side of the balance
sheet: tax savings and credit control, both also critical to business
success. This event
