Presenter: Michael McLin
Tuesday, November 14 at 2 pm ET

Cash flow is one of the most important issues facing contractors today.  Having survived the downturn, companies are faced with starting new projects, hiring staff, and investing in assets to support the business.  More companies go bankrupt due to cash flow issues than due to profitability.  Many things can and should be done to improve cash management practices.  We will explore a range of tools and techniques, from simple to complex, that allow firms to manage and control cash flow.
