Past event | Leveraging the cloud for your NFP

This event has finished.

Wednesday 25 November 4:30pm-7:30pm

Organisations are often looking for new and better ways of doing things.  The advent of cloud computing, specialist service organisations, and collaborative hubs presents an opportunity for rethinking the accounting and administration function.

RSM have invited presenters from Aktive and Xero to share their practical experiences of how they are together assisting sporting organisations and other not-for-profit organisations to work in a different way to more efficiently handle their accounting function.  We will also hear the perspective from Dave Currie, CEO of College Sport Auckland, an organisation that has recently made the transition.  Prior to his current role, Dave Currie was the Black Caps Manager from 2009-2011, Chef de Mission for New Zealand teams at three Olympic and three Commonwealth games and was made a companion of the New Zealand Order of Merit in 2009.

If you are interested in an alternative and potentially better way of running your accounting and administration, come along and hear this practical case study.  This will be an interactive session with plenty of opportunity to question and discuss implementations for your not-for-profit organisation with the presenters.


Board members, CEOs, accounting and administrative teams within charities and not-for-profit organisations.

Join us for a complimentary, informative seminar followed by drinks and nibbles.
