Our popular series returns

Last year’s webinars were a hit across councils Australia wide. This year we return better than ever with new webinars, refreshed content and our popular interactive style. These webinars are suitable for both finance and non-finance staff.

Webinar Schedule

Once council has decided to take either the 13 or 7 webinar package, council should advise staff, who can then register below. Please note that if a 7 webinar package is chosen, staff can only choose from the 7 webinars that council nominates. There are no payment requests in the registration process, council will be billed separately.

Please see brochure for more details.

The content has been selected to cover the important topics that are most often the ones we advise councils clients about. Each session includes comprehensive course materials.
