arena4finance ltd are specialists in financial training for the service sector. We offer training, coaching and mentoring to help business managers understand and interpret financial information. We are delighted to partner with APSE to offer three one-day courses for the public sector (please click on the course title to find out more):
The course will also consider the issues faced by catering providers in the challenging times for the service sector including managing the cost of food and the cost of labour.
This course will enable food service managers and supervisors to focus on how to plan and manage commercial catering operations including events and banqueting to drive a surplus.
As local authorities undertake increased commercial activity and invest in property in order to become self-sufficient, naturally they take on greater responsibility and subsequently more risk. If such schemes are to be successful, it is vital that the key personnel involved are equipped with the necessary skills. Local councils need the skillset not only to invest and manage wisely, but to grow these initiatives to make a surplus to reinvest in their services and maintain the quality of the user experience. This course has been designed to support decision makers with making financial decisions regarding the development, pricing and costing of products and services.
"Great knowledge of the area backed up by experience" - Simon Cheyette, Lancaster City Council
