The purpose of the session:

At the end of this session participants should have a basic understanding of how to ensure that their trust’s finances are being well spent.

Director’s Note:

This session is in direct response from requests from Governors in MACs. This is new to us, so we’ve bought in the very best, this is a small (expensive) session, hence the small additional charge. You asked, we responded.
