Invitation to join our upcoming virtual workshops

Organisations can save time and money, and communicate their business outcomes effectively, by being ‘audit ready’. Being ‘audit ready’ requires organisations to effectively manage their financial reporting risk. This is where BDO can help you.

We invite you to join our virtual workshops to get you ‘audit ready’ for 31 December 2020 reporting.

Presented by BDO’s IFRS Advisory experts and using multiple practical case studies, our virtual workshops will assist you to develop an approach to follow when your organisation is preparing 31 December 2020 financial statements and set you on a path to be ‘audit ready’.

Each attendee will receive:

  • A participants workbook with practical case studies delivered prior to the commencement of the session
  • A solutions workbook upon completion of the course, and
  • Presentation slides.

The Virtual Workshops can be attended as each stand-alone session, or as a course.  These interactive workshops are ideal for:

  • For-profit and not-for-profit Chief Financial Officers
  • Financial Controllers
  • Finance Managers
