Understanding Your Profit Drivers with Andrea Moody + AGM @ Waterman Business Centre
Aug 1 @ 6:30 pm – 8:30 pm

Understanding Your Profit Drivers Is Critical To Business Success – One of the toughest challenges small business owners face is learning how to manage financial performance. Business owners often think that great financial results just “happen,” but that is seldom the case. Some do get lucky sometimes, but success usually comes to those who are willing to roll up their sleeves and do the hard yards.

Successful businesses achieve consistent profitability because they know the critical factors that drive their profitability and work relentlessly on those areas of the business.

For most businesses, there are three major profit drivers:

1) revenue,

2) variable costs (i.e. those costs that vary in direct proportion to revenue) and

3) fixed costs (or overhead).

Which leads to an interesting question: do all of these drivers have the same impact on profit?
