AoC SE Finance Directors’ Network
Date(s) - 18/05/2018
10:00 am - 2:30 pm
A long standing, lively senior management network which continues to be an invaluable resource for Finance Directors across the region.
With input from the Education and Skills Funding Agency, colleagues are kept apprised of the latest updates on the key challenges affecting the sector.
A range of external organisations have also offered input, including Barclays, Highlander Computing Solutions, Nucleus Commercial Finance and BDO.
Group discussions feature at every network, giving delegates the opportunity to raise any concerns or challenges, as well as share best practice with the group members.
This network benefits from the experience of two Chairs: David Moir, Deputy Principal Finance and Resources at Basingstoke College of Technology and Biram Desai, Vice Principal Corporate Services at Sussex Coast College, Hastings.
