Can you tell the story of your financial organization?
Do you know if your business is making a profit?

We can make you accounting literate in JUST ONE DAY!

Staff at every level will contribute to your business more effectively when they understand what drives your profit and cash flow.  Our highly interactive, fun and hands-on workshops use accelerated learning techniques and special props and metaphors to demystify accounting. They’re based on a new approach called accounting language education, which makes them relevant to everyday business activities.
