Finance for Non-Finance Managers

27/04/2022, 9:30 am - 12:30 pm

Understanding finance is one of the key management skills, yet it is one that is the least developed. The very thought of dealing with numbers and the jargon associated with it puts most people off. Yet once you have grasped the fundamentals, financial management is a key tool to better manage projects and organisations, as well as supporting your own progress.

This comprehensive workshop introduces you to some key concepts of financial management and introduces you to financial accounts, the information that is reported to the public and the Charity Commission. This is an ideal introduction for those new to management or approaching management to get to grips with finance and using financial information as a tool for improved management

Workshop content:

  • An introduction to financial management
  • How financial projections support and improve your strategy
  • How to understand and capture costs

  • Why we need budgets and how to create and manage budgets
  • How you use budgets as a management tool
  • A layman’s understanding of financial accounts
  • Key information requirements
  • The Trustees Annual Report
  • Understanding Reserves
