Financial Expertise for Approved Providers (#2 of 2)

For 2022, the Australian Childcare Alliance (ACA) NSW has updated and expanded its Quickies series of short but to the point presentations that help existing and new providers.

The ACA NSW Quickies are only 2 hours or less and held throughout the year in face-to-face, live webinar and video-on-demand formats. They are for Approved Providers, Owners, Directors and Nominated Supervisors with industry-specific information, advice, tips and even “tricks”.

Developed jointly by PwC, these two-part Quickies will help you work on your business by having a better understanding of your financial statements, leveraging key metrics and planning for an even more financially successful future. (Please note, ACA NSW members can participate for free.)
