It’s daunting enough joining
a board and getting to grips with your role and responsibilities, especially if
it is your first board appointment. But
if you do not have a financial background or training, then it’s an even more
daunting prospect to have to interrogate the companies accounts, and make sure
you understand the many financial documents you will be presented with.
In the safe environment of this one day workshop, you will join other delegates in the same boat as yourself to learn the essentials of board finances, how to understand and interpret the accounts and assess the financial health of the organisation.
Our presenter is Stephen McNamee. Stephen is a Chartered Accountant and is currently a Lecturer in Accounting at the Ulster University. He has a wide range of experience across professional practice, the public sector, the banking industry and as a Senior Consultant with PricewaterhouseCoopers.
Supported by Ulster Bank and Arthur Cox as part of the IoD Competent Director Series.
