Financial Literacy has never looked so good!


The team at Colour Accounting™ were frustrated. Frustrated because learning finance was such a chore. Business people (even at senior levels) were winging it when financial statements passed their desk. Managers didn’t know a balance sheet from a P&L.

The Colour Accounting™ team decided enough was enough and produced and created this awesome finance for non-finance managers course. They developed a simple 5-box model where every financial question/problem/opportunity can be explained. It is so simple we, at The Holst Group loved it and instantly added the Colour Accounting course to our portfolio.
