Director at Non Profit Training

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

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.
