Workshop Content

This workshop will help you dig out your crystal ball and plan your finances for the next 12 months. We’ll look at how to predict likely incomings and outgoings, and how to spot problems before they catch you by surprise.

We’ll work through some typical scenarios relevant to your creative work and include plenty of examples to help you get used to taking control of your financial future.

You don’t have to be a whizz at maths or spreadsheets as we’ll aim to make sure that it’s easy to understand. We’ll also provide you with a useful toolkit to use after the workshop to help make managing your cash flow straightforward. The workshop includes:

  • An introduction to monthly budgeting for personal and business spending
  • Using estimates to set work patterns
  • How to make sound business decisions based on financial information
  • Risk planning
  • Cash flow planning.

Who should attend?

Any freelance who wants to improve their financial and cash flow planning and management and is daunted by financial unknowns.

Note: We’ll be using spreadsheets to illustrate examples but you won’t need to use spreadsheets during the workshop. You will find a calculator useful. The one on your phone will do!

Learning outcomes

By the end of this workshop you should be able to:

  • understand how to guestimate monthly budgets
  • use cash flow planning to avoid problems before they happen
  • use financial estimates to help make better business decisions
  • use spreadsheet templates (provided) to plan your own freelance life

Tutor: David Thomas


We will let you know promptly after the deadline if you have obtained a place. Unlike our webinars, we have a limited number of places for each online workshop. If you do not hear from us, please assume that you have not secured a place on this occasion.

Once you have confirmed that you can participate, we will send you the workshop link. If you do not confirm promptly, we will offer your place to someone else on the waiting list.

If you confirm your place but find that you are unable to participate, please let us know asap so that we can re-allocate your place to someone on the waiting list. If you do not let us know this will disadvantage another member. Also, we may lose the funds that enable us to provide these free workshops to all members including you.

We may not be able to offer everyone a place on every workshop, but, if there is high demand, we will try to set up further workshops on this topic in the near future and those who did not get a place this time will be offered first refusal. Also, please keep applying because everyone will get a place on a workshop asap.
