The May 2020 meeting will be a webinar and has been postponed to June - date to be confirmed shortly. 

The webinar will be hosted by BDO and will cover the following topics:

1. Reforecasting your finances to remain resilient

While the world is rightly focused on the health and wellbeing of individuals during the current situation, leadership teams need also to have a grasp on the financial resilience of their charities to ensure the right actions are taken today. But you can only truly understand your resilience if you have the right forecasts in place. We will talk through how to re-forecast in the uncertain situation we find ourselves today.


2. Returning to work – what’s the risk?

Returning to work after an extended working from home period will come with its own risks. These need to be managed, just as any other risk would – carefully and appropriately. Not all risks will warrant the same attention, but an effective internal audit team will be in a strong position to advise on these risks and support your charity plan a safe return.
