Saward Dawson’s Governance Series is continuing in 2016 in order to assist our clients’ governance practices with specifically designed and practical seminars. If you couldn’t answer yes to the above questions, this session is for you as we will focus specifically on finances and financial reporting.

The Board is ultimately responsible for ensuring the accuracy and appropriateness of both internal and external financial reporting for an organisation. The Centro case reinforced that every board member bears this responsibility. Equally as important is that financial information is key to a board fulfilling its role as both a monitor and driver of organisational performance.

In this session we will provide an introduction to financial reporting.  Topics to be covered include:

bulletExternal financial reporting frameworks
bulletThe basic components of financial reports
bulletEffective management reporting
bulletInternal controls in relation to finances
bulletLegal duties in relation to finances.

Examples and pro-forma documents will be provided to participants.

This session is specifically designed for Board members and CEOs looking to improve their understanding of financial reporting. The session is limited to 20 participants to allow for discussion and networking. Jeff Tulk our Head of Governance and Financial Reporting will facilitate this session. Jeff is a qualified Chartered Accountant, a graduate of the AICD and an experienced trainer and facilitator who regularly presents for the Governance Institute and Chartered Accountants ANZ.
