Webinar: Keep Calm and Embrace the Numbers



Better Boards is pleased to present Keep Calm and Embrace the Numbers in partnership with Jenny Holliday from Non Profit Training.


Register: Individual or Group.


Board members of not for profit organisations come to the table with a mix of skills and experiences which makes their contribution special. However when finances aren’t their thing, making financial decisions and approving the financials can be intimidating.


Most Directors are aware of their individual responsibility to ensure the organisation is solvent, the importance of being able to read the financial reports, ask probing questions, analyse financial risks and make decisions. Not an easy task.


This webinar will provide tips for scanning the three key financial reports and zeroing in on the pertinent numbers. It will educate participants on the key financial indicators that will tell you if your organisation is on the right track.


Join us on 29 June 2017 at 1pm AEST to hear from one of Australia’s a leading trainers on board finance, Jenny Holliday.
