Numbers really do tell a story if you know how to truly read a spreadsheet or general ledger report. Do you sometimes stare at the rows and columns and wonder what you might be missing?  Does reviewing the audit make you nervous?

This full day session will make fiscal management easier and infinitely more enjoyable. Using actual examples of financial reports we will break the code and elicit the real story behind the numbers. This session will also get you ready for that next grant or board meeting by allowing you to translate program/agency strategies into meaningful fiscal language. No previous financial experience needed for this highly interactive session

By taking this workshop, participants will be able to: 

  • Recognize the language of budgeting and accounting 
  • Discuss when and how to respond to variances in both revenue and expenses
  • Decide what is meaningful and what is cyclical
  • Recognize common budgeting mistakes
  • Explain an audit report and/or financial report in plain English
  • Engage in meaningful and constructive dialogue with their fiscal office 

 This workshop is best suited for:

  • Anyone who does program budgeting or fiscal management
  • Program staff responsible for grant management
  • Board members who want to conduct better fiscal oversight
