Our Principal, Heather Young, is one of three speakers slated for a February 29, 2012 workshop entitled Financial Management: Building a Strong Bottom Line. Along with consultant Jessa Agilo-Copeland and General Manager Kendra Fry, Heather will help participants from the arts sector increase their financial literacy, with tips for understanding finances, hands on techniques for dealing with private and earned revenue, donor cultivation, deficit reduction, recovery from financial collapse and balancing artistic choices vs. management choices. Using real case studies, the speakers will walk participants through financial statements and assist them in analysing the financial health of an organization so that they walk away from the workshop with practical tools to implement in their daily work.

This professional development workshop is part 2 of a 4 part series generously funded by the Ontario Arts Council, and offered by the Canadian Dance Assembly (CDA) in partnership with the Dancer Transition Resource Centre (DTRC), the Dance Umbrella of Ontario (DUO) and the Professional Association of Canadian Theatres (PACT) – with the support of, Creative Trust and CCI – Ontario Presenting Network.
