An owner's guide to working with accounting staff

Accountants speak a unique language that is not often understood by the people who depend on them for information. 

In this class, designed for owners and managers who rely on the numbers in their business, we will demystify standard accounting terminology and how it is uniquely applied in the wine industry.  We will share tools for working with accounting staff and reviewing financial reporting. 

Winery leaders will leave this class with tools that allow them to delegate core accounting tasks without abdicating responsibility for the financial results of their business.
