True Cost Accounting for Food: Balancing the Scale (Routledge Studies in Food, Society and the Environment)

This book explains how True Cost Accounting is an effective tool we can use to address the pervasive imbalance in our food system. Calls are coming from all quarters that the food system is broken and needs a radical transformation. A system that feeds many yet continues to create both extreme hunger and diet-related diseases, and one which has significant environmental impacts, is not serving the world adequately. This volume argues that True Cost Accounting in our food system can create a framework for a systemic shift. What sounds on the surface like a practice relegated to accountants is ultimately a call for a new lens on the valuation of food and a new relationship with the food we eat, starting with the reform of a system out of balance. From the true cost of corn, rice and water, to incentives for soil health, the chapters economically compare conventional and regenerative, more equitable farming practices in and food system structures, including taking an unflinching look at the true cost of cheap labour. Overall, this volume points towards the potential for our food system to be more human-centred than profit-centred and one that has a more respectful relationship to the planet. It sets forth a path forward based on True Cost Accounting for food. This path seeks to fix our current food metrics, in policy and in practice, by applying a holistic lens that evaluates the actual costs and benefits of different food systems, and the impacts and dependencies between natural systems, human systems, agriculture and food systems. This volume is essential reading for professionals and policymakers involved in developing and reforming the food system, as well as students and scholars working on food policy, food systems and sustainability.

Organisations and management accounting

This 12-hour free course explored the nature of organisations, their objectives and structure, and environmental factors that impact on them.

I Will Teach You Excel: Master Excel, surpass your co-workers, and impress your boss!

Ever get passed up for a promotion or pay increase and wonder, "why didn't I get it"? Ever wonder if your skills are good enough to compete in today's crowded job market? You work hard, go above and beyond and still can't seem to get noticed. Many of today's jobs require that you be familiar with Microsoft Excel. How can you become proficient at Excel when companies aren't willing to teach you this valuable skill?

This leaves many people trying to learn as they go and never quite feeling 100% comfortable with the program. What's worse, most people haven't even scratched the surface of Excel's potential, even if they've been using it for years. If you feel this way, you're not alone.

Think about this for a second; what will your career look like in a year if you don't take action today and improve your Excel skills? How about five years from now? Unless you take matters into your own hands things may not look much different.

According to a recent Wall Street Journal article, people who show proficiency in Microsoft Excel and other common office applications earn, on average, 13% more than those who don't. For most people this could mean tens of thousands of dollars over just a few years, and this doesn't even factor in lost promotions and job offers. Can you afford to leave so much on the table as a result of maintaining the status quo?

I've experienced this transformation in my career and can tell you first hand how it has helped me. When I was fresh out of college and working my first accounting job my manager asked me to complete a project that involved using VLOOKUPS. I enthusiastically obliged, walked back to my desk, and proceeded to panic. I tricked myself into thinking that I was an excel expert only because I knew a few formulas, my limited knowledge only scratched the surface. I turned to a college buddy for help; Google. I eventually managed to learn what I needed, after a lot of time and energy.

I've climbed the ladder and worn many hats since then. I can't say that the opportunities I've earned in my career are solely due to my increasing Excel proficiency. What I can definitely say is that Excel has earned me more opportunities to prove myself to management than waiting for opportunities to materialize on their own.

That's why I decided to write this book. My goal is to take you from Excel novice to master in the shortest time possible. I wrote my book specifically for the busy professional, in an easy to read manner that gets straight to the point and teaches the meat of Excel. I wrote this book for you.


I have helped many people improve their careers through Excel and now it's your turn. Here is what you get when you download my book:

-18 chapters of the most useful Excel techniques that will immediately take your skills to the next level

-Practical use cases plus downloadable workbooks so that you can take what you learn and feel, first hand, how to apply those skills to real world scenarios

-A FREE copy of my latest book on Google Sheets so you can stay ahead of the curve

You're at the point of decision. You can either continue down the path of least resistance, the path you have already been traveling, or you can choose the road less traveled. The path of least resistance will probably result in you getting the same outcomes you've always received.

But if you want something different to happen, if you want to change the direction of your career you're going to have to do something different. Make a choice now, pursue new outcomes.
