Finance Masterclass

Launched with support from the EU’s Regional Development Fund, Harwood Hutton’s Finance Masterclass is a one-day interactive seminar aimed at ambitious SME business leaders.

The programme is delivered by our multi-award-winning corporate finance expert Adam Stronach in tandem with our business development director Tom Gooder, who brings vital insight into the UK banking sector and how to prepare and present your business for the greatest chance of success.

Together, Adam and Tom help you get to grips with four essential components of running and growing a business:

  • Understanding business finance – and how to identify your key drivers
  • Identifying the most appropriate type of development finance for your business
  • Business planning and forecasting, including CFADS and other key ratios
  • Pitching to Win! How to give yourself the best chance of success when presenting to potential backers

The Finance Masterclass includes a series of exercises designed to improve your knowledge and skills in the area of managing cashflow and investor relations, whether that is debt or equity stakeholders.

“We have distilled our extensive experience of helping SMEs secure growth funding into a package that will be of tremendous value to any ambitious SME business leader” – Adam Stronach

  • “I wasn’t sure it would be relevant but I am so glad I attended.”
  • “Informative and professional. I learned so much.”
  • “I sometimes feel I spend too much time analysing figures but today highlighted the importance of doing so!”

Client Testimonials
  • I always get quick, clear and definitive responses from the Harwood Hutton tax team – commercial answers to commercial issues.

    Robin Berry – Morgan Management
  • Right from the outset Harwood Hutton gave us direction and great advice – and that advice has evolved over the years as we’ve grown. We’re both medium-sized companies providing a bespoke service – one furniture, one accountancy – and the relationship works.

    Andy McCarron, McCarron and Co
  • I’m deeply impressed with Harwood Hutton’s extensive knowledge of tax arrangements for residential and commercial property landlords.

    Qadeer Ahmed, MD, ABA Finance
  • They really took their time to understand what was important to us and our business and the expertise we required. Whoever we speak to at HH, we get the same fantastic response and technical input. It’s a real partnership.

    Edward Finch, group MD, MRIB insurance brokers
  • I have worked with the directors at Harwood Hutton on a number of mutual client matters over many years. The reassurance of their clear, commercial and focussed advice is one of the main reasons I regard this as one of my most valuable professional relationships.

    Frank Wessely, Partner, Quantuma LLP
  • Harwood Hutton never seem to rest on their laurels. They are always seeking out new avenues and ways to improve their offering. A very forward-thinking company with staff who are always well briefed and who approach each task with drive.

    Karl Austen, MD, Surefoot Communications
  • We have engaged Harwood Hutton in several areas of structuring, including VAT issues, decoupling an SPV from a group structure and HMRC clearance for a transaction. The team have exceeded all expectations by being proactive, measured and very thorough.

    Adam Fawsitt, Director, FHT Limited
  • We moved to Harwood Hutton as they delivered a succinct and professional proposal. If anything, we have been more impressed post-move. They are a fantastic company to work with. They do truly differentiate. They have the skills and capabilities of a mega firm but with a personal service.
