Finance Count Benchmarking Workshops

14th December 2005

We are pleased to announce, for the first quarter of 2006, a series of workshops that will enable members to explore key issues arising from the benchmarking survey.

Finance Count benchmarking workshops: January - March 2006
The Finance Count financial management benchmarking study, in which 127 voluntary organisations took part, was published in June 2005. Since the report appeared, many participants have expressed their desire to explore various aspects of their financial processes in more depth, and to identify and share good practice. Agenda Consulting and CFDG have developed a series of workshops to meet this need. The workshops have been planned with the help of a steering group, consisting of finance directors from several voluntary organisations. All the workshops will be held at CFDG, 1 London Bridge, London, from 2 to 5 p.m.

Who should attend?
The workshops are for finance directors, finance managers, heads of finance, chief executives and senior managers who are seeking to improve their organisation’s approach to financial management.

What are the benefits?
Hear a case study from a high performing voluntary organisation;
Discuss and compare your own situation and experiences with those of your peers;
Learn about good practice;
Obtain practical knowhow about how to move forward in your organisation;
Receive a write-up of the case study and good practice points.

What is the cost?
£60 per workshop (for up to two delegates per organisation) but a discount is applied once you book for three or more workshops.
