[Episode 92] Where do you go for financial support? Yvonne Greeves, director of Women in Business at NatWest Group, provides some answers

We can’t lie. Our maths lessons were spent writing ‘hello’ on our calculators and wondering how useful the phrase ‘SOHCAHTOA’ would be in life! But when you’re running a business – as excruciating as this might be (for some people at least) – you have to make friends with your numbers. You need to cosy up and really get to know them.

Thankfully, we’ve got just the woman to help get you a little more familiar with your forecasts. 📈 As a champion of women in business, Yvonne Greeves has kindly let us pop our metaphorical cash card into her knowledge bank and make a substantial withdrawal that’ll leave you feeling like you’ve won the lottery.

You’ll love Yvonne’s interpretation of being risk-averse and her thoughts on what triggers business growth.
