Free Masterclass-From surviving to thriving – cash flow forecasting for charities

Posted on behalf of The Cranfield Trust

Even if you are making a surplus, your charity won’t survive if you don’t have cash when you need it! Come to the Cranfield Trust’s half-day free Masterclass and find out how to create a rolling cash flow forecast, and use it to keep your management and Board focused on the all-important cash balance that means the difference between surviving and thriving.


Venue: The Masterclass will take place at the Cardiff office of investment advisers, Brewin Dolphin, at 5 Callaghan Square, Cardiff. CF10 5BT https://www.brewin.co.uk/our-offices/cardiff/


Date:  Wednesday 27th March 2019


Time: 12:30pm to 4:00pm


Cost:  Free to Charities (this event is exclusively for voluntary sector organisations)

The class will be presented by Cranfield Trust's South West Project Manager Marie Langan has over 29 years of accounting and auditing experience in a variety of management roles in Big Four and Top 20 firms in the UK and US. 


Why cash flow and forecasting? In the current economic climate, financial planning, budgeting and forecasting are hot topics every charity needs to get on top of to build resilience and ensure sustainability. If your funders and Board don’t already ask you to provide a cash flow forecast, they soon will be. This Masterclass will be interactive and you will get the opportunity to ask questions and work through examples to help you understand how to manage money and understand the impact of good money management on your charity’s accounts. You will also get the opportunity to meet your peers from charities across Cardiff and the surrounding area, and you will receive helpful advice and tips on resources available to you when you get back to your desk.


Who will benefit? The Masterclass is aimed at non-finance professionals in finance roles at charities, who are responsible for aspects of financial management but do not necessarily have a finance or accounting background. Charity Trustees are also welcome, to increase their knowledge and level of confidence with financial reports, especially around funding, costs and forward planning.

The following topics will be covered:




  •          Planning




  •          Budgeting




  •          Cash flow forecasts




  •          Full cost recovery




  •          Management accounts




  •          Financial controls




  •          Financial reporting




How do I book? Spaces are limited to two per organisation and can be booked via Eventbrite. please note that you will need to book each space individually.

The energy complex - putting consumers first

Posted on behalf of Energy UK Young Energy Professionals (YEP) Forum

Energy UK's Young Energy Professionals Forum with Alacrity Foundation are hosting a panel event on The energy complex - putting consumers first on 20th March in Cardiff.

The energy transition is pointless without truly understanding how we as consumers are interacting with our energy supply and what we expect and demand from it. 
 
With rising energy prices becoming the norm, people are becoming more disillusioned with their energy suppliers than ever before. The energy sector needs to be thinking more about how energy is being used by consumers and what individual companies can do to improve customer experience. Energy-as-a-Service is a term that is being thrown around a lot but what does it really mean? And how are organisations looking to fill this gap in the market? 

This event aims to discuss the topics surrounding customers in the energy industry and how different organisations are going back to the drawing board in order to put the customer first. We will hear from industry experts at both ends of the scale, from the big multi-nationals to the small and agile innovators, and find out what they think is important in this next evolution of the energy industry. 

Following the panel discussion, there will be a drinks reception. Speakers are to be announced shortly for this CGI-sponsored event.

We look forward to seeing you there!
