Why we are more effective than traditional methods
01We start right at the foundation
Business Management knowledge starts with Accounting.
“You have to understand accounting and you have to understand the nuances of accounting. It’s the language of business and it’s an imperfect language, but unless you are willing to put in the effort to learn accounting—how to read and interpret financial statements— you really shouldn’t select stocks yourself.”
02We are visual
When you see it, you get it and never forget.
BaSISTM (Balance Sheet, Income Statement) is an innovative framework created by the founders of Color Accounting International. It is unique to Color Accounting workshops.
The learner is introduced to the 5 foundational & connected components of Accounting in a deliberate, unforgettable manner so as to unravel their role and importance. This installs a strong leverageable foundation, applicable in all personal and business finance contexts. The learner then segues into Financial analysis, as a natural evolution of earlier acquired Accounting knowledge.
We are easy to comprehend
Simplified language, colors for intuitive
association, and storyboard
narrative for immersive learning. This ensures the learner moves from

"Color Accounting has the advantage of showing how accounting works visually. We all tend to see problems and relationships more easily visually, so the Accounting Comes Alive approach takes advantage of how we learn most effectively. As such, I believe that it is of value to anyone who is interested in understanding how accounting works (from high school students to MBAs to business executives)."
"Attached please find the
