SSC & CNPL Joint Workshop 2018
In keeping with its original intention, the 2018 workshop, jointly hosted by Shared Services for Charities (SSC) and the Centre for Non-Profit Leadership (CNPL), now into its 2ndyear, is designed for senior and mid-level leaders. Recognising the importance of Annual Reports as one of the key pillars of disclosure and transparency, the joint planning team opted for the following theme: Annual Reports – Communicating Value Creation To Stakeholders and designated 31 May 2018, as the event date.
This workshop achieved several firsts, among them were:
- Dr Ang Hak Seng, Commissioner of Charities (COC) agreed to deliver the Opening Remarks
- The HEAD Foundation offered its auditorium as the workshop venue as well as hosting the Networking Lunch
Attracting a full-house, the participants acknowledged that they came to hear, besides COC, Uantchern Loh, Board Member SSC and CEO, Asia Pacific Black Sun and Vaidyanath (Vady) Swami, Board Member BizLink Centre Singapore Ltd & CEO Coach Excel. They also came to interact with a panel composed of distinguish personalities coming from the corporate, educational and charity sector.
COC’s address was indeed the show-stopper. Providing a running dialogue on the state of the sector, he outlined what his office is doing to alleviate the challenges faced by smaller charities. Click On This Link to view Dr Ang’s entire speech.
In their presentations, both Uantchern and Vaidy, set the stage for the panel discussion which was to follow. They delved into the techniques of framing and communicating the right message in Annual Reports. Click On This Link to view Uantchern’s presentation and On This Link to view Vaidy’s presentation.
The panel discussion, helmed by Kitson Lee, Deputy Director, Leadership, CNPL, brought the event to a fitting end.
