Financial Literacy in a Nutshell Workshop at CAMACOL

The Office Continuing Education, in partnership with the Latin Chamber of Commerce of the United States, CAMACOL, and supported by the Coca-Cola Beverages Florida , held the second workshop on October 10th, on the topic of  “Financial Literacy in a Nutshell”.  The series of four business workshops are part of Coca-Cola Beverages Florida support of the CAMACOL/Coca-Cola Business Incubator Initiative that reinforces the company’s commitment to supporting economic empowerment within the local communities by helping the small businesses it proudly serves. The Office of Continuing Education developed the program content for all the workshops.

Commissioner Eileen Higgins, Miami-Dade County District 5, stopped by to greet the workshop participants.  She talked to them about the small business services her office has for companies like the ones they own and/or work for.  Commissioner Higgins answered questions and mentioned to the participants that they should feel free to contact her office should they require further information.

Alfredo Lacayo Evertsz, the workshop instructor, is a Florida SBDC at FIU business consultant who provides financial assistance to entrepreneurs and small-business owners.  He is the founder of Qbit Solutions and the developer of an innovative quantum-based financial training methodology that has been used to teach finance and accounting to more than 700 business owners and professionals in the United States and Latin America.

The objective of the workshop was for participants to:

  • Speak the language of the accountant in record time
  • Gain a true understanding of the key financial statements
  • Learn to perform fundamental financial analysis of their business

In addition, the workshop’s visual cues provided the participants with the fundamentals of business finance from scratch and in less than 24 hours!
