Storytelling with Financials will share ways to use your organization's financials to make a greater impact. This is NOT a technical session on accounting or audits or line items on the 990. This is a big picture overview to helping leaders understand their organization's financial health and how to talk about it with stakeholders - board, staff, volunteers, donors, constituents, the general public, etc.
Everyone will understand key metrics and takeaways that they can glean from their organization's basic financial statements. They'll understand how to translate these metrics into an interesting story and the who/when/how/what to share about your numbers.
This is a practical yet inspirational session for busy leaders who need to tell the story of their numbers but have a hard time translating a spreadsheet into words.
Attendees will learn the foundation of financial management, why transparency in your financials is important, who should see your financials, how to present the financials, and specific reports and metrics attendees can review and share with stakeholders.
