Facilitated by Tony Clarke, Clarke&CO and CO3
Tuesday 21 June 2022, 10:00 – 13:00
CO3 Office, 31 Bruce Street, Belfast, BT2 7JD

Many organisations have inherited financial systems and management reporting tools that have not been reviewed in years, leaving the CEO, SMT and Board of Trustees with financial reports that they may not understand or are not fit for purpose in helping them to lead the organisation to meet its strategic objectives.

This course will provide participants with a refresher on how to read a set of financial accounts and generally examines what information should be included in a financial management report. The course will also cover areas such as:

What information should I be asking from my finance officer/director?

What questions should I expect from my board in relation to our accounts?

The workshop will take place in person which will be followed by a separate one to one virtual session (on a date to suit you) which will allow delegates to review their own financial reporting systems in confidence and to consider ways that these may be improved to provide them with better financial information to support decision making.
