Course Details

The aim of this session is to produce a 13 week cash flow model which fully integrates to a three statement financial statement forecast. Both a direct and an indirect cash flow statement will be produced. The financials are modeled for a variety of time periods: weekly, quarterly and annually. The actual financials are integrated so that the financial forecast is up to date and there is a variance analysis output section. The issues are the efficiency and integrity of the model.

What is a Virtual Classroom

Virtual Classroom training is a new and highly engaging way of delivering programs remotely with enhanced levels of interactivity compared to conventional webinars. In AMT’s Virtual Classroom participants are encouraged to activate their own webcams and mics throughout the class allowing for real-time engagement, both verbal and non-verbal, with fellow participants and their trainer. Participants can also share their screens to get instant assistance in any technical exercise; just like asking the trainer to walk over and help in the classroom! We have seen a step-change in participant engagement with this new technology. The trainer’s ability to see a selection of their participants’ faces in real-time, and to react to their verbal and non-verbal cues creates a remarkably realistic classroom-like experience.
