Event Summary

Beyond the legal duties to financial management best practice

If you already have sound knowledge of your charity’s legal obligations, but would like to build on your financial knowledge to ensure that your board is as effective as it needs to be, this seminar is ideal for you. Managing Finances: Good Practices in Financial Governance will equip you to ensure your board has good practical financial information, policies and procedures.

• How useful is the financial information that you get?
• Are you able to link financial information with strategic decisions?
• Is your board able to use what it has to make key decisions and manage risk?
• Are your charity’s financial controls robust?

This two hour session will look at good practice ways of presenting finance information to enable boards to make efficient and effective decisions. The session will focus on understanding what KPIs are needed and why, and how these may be linked to strategic objectives to maximise accountability and transparency. We will also examine how to approach and critically review your charity’s key risks and formulate associated policies such as reserves. Facilitator Jacqueline Williams will also share tips on what makes a good set of management accounts. Bring your KPIs and financial policies with you.

This seminar will assume prior knowledge of financial management.
