About the Event

Sadly, the failure or collapse of many organisations could have easily been avoided with the implementation of a few governance or financial management systems. This invaluable course will explain how organisations can enhance their resilience and capacity to recover quickly after shocks or difficulties by identifying and addressing a few common organisational weaknesses. 

The workshop will use a practical, hands-on approach to demonstrate the key financial planning and monitoring tools necessary to keep your organisation's spending within your budget plans. Drawing on his experience at PAVO (Powys Association of Voluntary Organisations) supporting organisations in crisis, trainer Nick Venti will also equip attendees with the principles and methodologies that can help organisations think and act swiftly to address unexpected challenges. 

  • At the end of this session you will understand: 
  • The key governance and management features of a resilient organisation
  • Different resilience methodologies and coping strategies
  • How to develop contingency plans for difficult times
  • The importance and basics of cash flow forecasting & management accounts 

This course is aimed at anyone with responsibilities for steering an organisation or involved in the day-to-day planning and management of operations.
