Effective Financial Governance has become my "go-to" resource concerning the important trustee matters I liaise with. As a business officer, knowing that I can access this resource as soon as I return to my desk has given me comfort and confidence as I juggle one of the many balls of independent school operations. I love the Key Takeaways section of each chapter which bottom lines what I usually need.  Every business officer needs this resource at their fingertips as we navigate an increasingly complex set of challenges in the independent school world.
