Taking the mystery out of numbers so you can run a better business

Does this sound like you?

You’re a business owner, leader, manager or board member who has financial responsibility, but you feel awkward and embarrassed around the numbers side of business.

You’re struggling to understand the accounts or manage the financial aspects of your role — you’re not even sure which questions to ask.

This lack of understanding is impacting your confidence and ability to make informed decisions and it’s compromising your business results.

Maybe you’re a new or emerging CFO who wants to influence your organisation in the most powerful way possible.

If that’s you I can help

You won’t be scared of the numbers anymore!
You’ll have more confidence to talk about numbers
You’ll clearly understand your organisation’s financial position, knowing what to look out for and the key questions to ask.
You’ll be able to make informed financial decisions that steer you towards better outcomes and increased profitability.
You’ll have a constructive relationship with your accountant and/or bookkeeper because you’re now speaking the same language and share a common understanding.
You’ll be in a position to provide strong financial leadership to your organisation.

Finance did not come naturally to me, in fact I felt like I could break out in hives with the lack of knowledge and confidence I have in the subject.

I would recommend this course to anyone who is struggling to make sense of accounting and finance language and would like to become more confident in their financial decision making.

I had such an amazing day with Debbie at her Colour Accounting workshop.

Finances have long been a nebulous area for me and I have never felt confident or in control of my business’ financial situation. I now have a clear understanding of balance sheets, profit and loss statements and cash flow management. I feel empowered and in control of my finances!

Kate De Jong

Founder, Inspired Business

I for one didn’t want to admit I did not have a clue how to interpret a balance sheet.

Thanks to Debbie and this fabulously interesting and fun way of learning accounting, I am now able to do this with confidence.

Julie

Business Owner

It was an absolute joy to chat to her about financial jargon and demystifying the balance sheet.

After meeting Debbie at two AICD events, I noticed she was running an online workshop and so I signed up for a new year financial literacy refresher. I loved her visual prompts and her ability to bring it all together for real world (and personal application). She genuinely cares about her learner experience and brings so much experience and joy to the conversation. I would attend anything she ran as I’m sure I will walk away with more knowledge!

Lara Ellson

For years, I have been wanting to step into the business analysis space, however I didn’t think that I had enough knowledge.

Working with Debbie has made me recognise that I do have the skillset and ability. She has given me the confidence to back myself, along with some useful tools to take the leap into this space.

Debbie has a way of simplifying the accounting jargon and explaining it in a simple manner. I highly recommend and just wish I had come across this workshop sooner. Thanks Debbie.

Fiona Mitchell

Debbie led one of the best courses I have attended a long time.

She’s very knowledgeable and explains complex things according to the level of the audience, I look forward to a future session!

Jorge Quezada

Debbie is such a wealth of information, and delivers so clearly and concise.

I really enjoyed learning from DHM Coaching & Consulting.

Kirsty Thompson

Debbie is a fantastic presenter.

Her material was relevant to my small business and she answered my questions clearly. Her examples and explanations of the course content were easily understandable. I cannot wait to attend more sessions with her – I honestly got some much out of this 1 day workshop and can’t wait for the next one.
