Three statement financial modelling in Excel 2018 - Workshop

My Offerings


This workshop will teach you how to build a three statement financial forecasting model from scratch. At the end of this course, you will know how to gather information from a variety of sources to create an effective financial model to assist in planning, budgeting and making optimal business decisions.

During the workshop you will work using a true to life dataset. Starting from a blank Excel spreadsheet, you will create a full set of forecast financial statements and a comprehensive financial model for your business which is pliable, sustainable and repeatable.

This course considers how business change might be incorporated in company analysis and includes detailed coverage of Excel functions that are both essential in financial modelling. Attendees can then choose a modelling scenario to see how the business performs under stress and how changing key financial measures will affect the business.
