TAP Skills Development Workshops- Financial Statement Analysis:
Have you ever looked at a company’s financial statements and wondered they mean? What about the company’s performance can you tell from the balance sheet, income statement, and statement of cash flows?

Have you ever been asked to analyze a company’s financial statements in an interview? How is the company performing? Do they have enough cash to sustain operations? What is the debt to equity ratio?

Have you ever wanted to learn how to quickly analyze a company’s financial statements and be able to discuss their financial position and performance? If you answered Yes to any of the above, this session is just what you have been looking for!
