Finance Training for Non Finance Managers

About this workshop

Managers, leaders and supervisors in not for profit organisations come to the job with a mix of skills and experiences which makes their contribution to the overall success of the organisation significant. Many don’t have an in-depth knowledge of accounting or a head for numbers, yet their individual responsibilities often incorporate budget development and understanding of how the performance of their department or program impacts on the whole organisation.

Learning how to read and understand the figures presented in financial reports through this workshop, will equip your leaders with the knowledge they require to make better informed future decisions.
