REMARKABLE FINANCIAL LITERACY EDUCATION FOR ENTREPRENEURS, EMPLOYEES, MANAGERS, PROFESSIONALS AND STUDENTS

​WHAT WE DO


We fast-track peoples' working knowledge of FINANCE



WHERE WE WORK

Africa is our home market, where we focus our efforts. 

Through our digital channels, we may attract a wider following.


THE PROBLEM WE ARE SOLVING

Financial ILL-iteracy. Across the world there is a general void when it comes to a working knowledge of Finance and Accounting, leading to all sorts of clear and hidden costs to people, organisations and societies. This void is well-recognised, leading to many governments and organisations funding Financial Literacy programmes and initiatives to eliminate this 100% eradicable disease. We believe Reckoning (i.e. Accounting and Finance) is the "missing 4th R" of basic literacy that every citizen should be equipped with.



WHO WE SERVE


Employees, Managers and Directors at medium to large organisations (Corporates, Governments, NGO's)


Entrepreneurs, irrespective of their commercial orientation


Professionals and their firms / practices (Lawyers, Doctors, Engineers, Architects, Coaches and Mentors, etc.)


Students and Academic Institutions



​HOW WE DO WHAT WE DO

Our Flagship offering is the international Colour Accounting Workshop.


This was traditionally offered as a 1-day Contact workshop before Covid, and is now additionally offered through a variety of digital channels - webinar style; 2-way video-conferencing style and self-service (on-demand).


Colour Accounting is a way of teaching accounting, finance and business graphically and in plain language. At the heart of the revolutionary system is the “BaSIS Framework” TM that explains  accounting on one page.
