Finance for Non Finance Directors Workshop November 27, 2019

Every board member understands the importance of company finances. However, not every director is aware of their specific role and responsibilities in regard to financial governance and stewardship.
This training is designed to equip directors that have a non-financial background with a deeper understanding of key financial issues, including how to spot red flags, vulnerabilities, and risks in company finances. Note: Prior knowledge of accounting or finance is not required.
Topics Covered:
• The director’s role and responsibilities in financial governance and reporting
• Life cycle of business financing, including sources of company finances and advantages/disadvantages
• How to interpret financial statements, including how to analyze business/financial information and use of ratios
• Governance of external financial reporting, including standards and practices
• Director’s checklist: key questions that each director should ask and how to spot red flags
