The Center for Women’s Entrepreneurship at Chatham University, in conjunction with Grossman Yanak & Ford LLP, invites you to attend our Finance and Business Seminars in September, 2010.

Seminar 1: Wednesday, September 8, 2010
Not Exactly Beach Reading (But Worth Your Time)
What tale do your financial statements tell - mystery, tragedy or thriller?

Presenters: Robin M. Ryan, Manager and Megan R. Troxell, Manager - Audit & Assurance Services Group of Grossman Yanak & Ford LLP

Financial statements are a critical component to any business. Whether you are looking back or looking ahead, accurate financial statements are required reading. Each financial statement tells a different tale, and understanding the story will allow you to better understand your business and make good decisions.

This seminar will outline the financial statements that tell your story. Balance sheets, income statements, statements of cash flows (oh my!), each of these are a chapter in your financial statement presentation. Footnotes, remember those from English class? Well, financial statements have their own version of footnotes, with lots of good information.

At the end of this seminar, you will understand what each of these mean to you, to your investors and your bankers. In addition, you will have some "speed reading" techniques, or key indicators that provide a snapshot of your business on a day to day basis.
