Part of the WISE Leadership Series, this full-day-equivalent crash course demystifies finance and accounting for non-accountants. The financial fluency taught in this course is foundational to all WISE Level II coursework. This course is designed to take the mystery out of winery accounting and make sense of the three main financial statements. Attendees will work with a sample company as they learn to become comfortable with the language of business. In addition to understanding the three bottom lines, attendees will also learn how to evaluate options, work with key ratios, and spot red flags in financial statements. Attendees will leave this class with a new appreciation for the financial challenges of owning a winery, their role in supporting overall financial results, and the importance of asking questions.
