REGISTRATIONS ARE ESSENTIAL


SEMINAR: 

5 SEPTEMBER BOOKKEEPING

 

Presenter: Harald Breiding-Buss of Christchurch Community Accounting

Date:  Wednesday 5 September 2018

Time:  9.30 am - 12.30 pm

Venue:  442 Tuam Street, Christchurch

Bookkeeping is the skill of recording your financial transactions in the right place and in the right way. It is the basis for the financial information that an organisation needs to make decisions, and in the high-compliance environment of charities, for example, it quickly gets expensive to sort out if not done right.

This workshop is about the essentials of bookkeeping as they apply to not-for-profits, including appropriate categorisation of receipts and payments, what to do with grants, GST and more. It does not matter for this workshop whether you use accounting software or your own system.

Harald Breiding-Buss is the managing accountant at Christchurch Community Accounting and also teaches full-year classes on accounting and not-for-profit administration at Hagley Community College for adult learners.

SEMINAR:  18 September  better board meetings

Presenter: Garth Nowland-Foreman of the LEaD Centre for NFP Leadership

Date:  Tuesday 18 September

Time: 9.30 am - 12.30 pm

Venue:  442 Tuam Street, Christchurch

Instead of taking minutes and wasting hours, it is possible to have fabulous meetings. We spend too much time in meetings for them to be inefficient or ineffective, especially when you multiply wasted time by the number of people in the room. Ill-focused or boring meetings are also one of the biggest turn-offs for potential board members.  Much more is at stake than we realise, and we don't have to put up with 'second-best'.

In this interactive and practical workshop we will focus on drawing out what makes for great decision-making meetings, and in particular you will learn:

 * Why preparation pays off in more focused and effective meetings, and how to use the forgotten tool of the 'agenda' to make preparation easier for everyone, and help ensure people are much more likely to all be on the same track (a simple tool is also presented to demonstrate how if you can plan for one meeting, you can plan for a year!)

* How to anticipate, and even use to your advantage the ebbs and flows of group decision-making (a simple model of group decision-making explains how it is different from individual decision-making, and suddenly common causes for frustration start to make sense and can be addressed) 

* Not only why 'participation is the purpose' of calling people together in a meeting, but also how participatory approach can save you time, overcome barriers, and make meetings more interesting (you will also leave with eight tiny tools for more participatory meetings).

 Boards, committees, staff meetings, in fact any decision-making meetings will never be the same again.

Garth Nowland-Foreman is an experienced board member, has taught in a graduate programme in not for profit management and is a partner of the LEaD Centre for Not for Profit Leadership www.lead.org.nz

SEMINAR: 17 OCTOBER sALES MINDSET FOR SCALING IMPACT

Presenter: Tim Jones is The Grow Good Guy

Date:   Wednesday 17 October

Time:  9.30 am - 12.30 pm

Venue:   442 Tuam Street, Christchurch

Over my time in the world of impact and purpose I have noticed one common trend. 

 Socent's and NFP's don't like sales.

 But for us as a community to have the positive impact that we really want in the world, we MUST sell our selves, our products and services. 

 There are heaps of techniques and tools that you can invest in to get more sales, however if you're not mentally prepared to sell you will go nowhere fast.

 In this workshop Tim will cover off the limiting beliefs that are holding you back from scaling your impact, as well as helping you to create a positive frame around selling. 

 Specifically you will examine:

• Why your purpose or ikigai isn't enough.
• Why selling is critical to your impact.
• Why humans buy.
• The 5 limiting beliefs specific to selling (and these effect even professional sales people!!).
• How we can easily fix these limiting beliefs.
• How we need to redefine how we think about sales for us to be successful.

 You will get tools and tips to enable you to showcase your business or idea to investors and customers in a truly authentic and purpose driven manner.

 Tim Jones is The Grow Good Guy. He works to connect individuals and organisations to purpose and scale their positive impact. His business is one of the founding B Corps in New Zealand and he is also the B Corp Ambassador for New Zealand. Tim specialises in training and coaching for mission driven and purpose led people and teams.
