TCV Weekly News: 23rd January 2020

Kia ora koutou  

 Last week I spent 3 days with the lovely staff and clients at Alzheimers Gisborne filming the first of the video series for 2020. We did many activities over the 3 days, puzzles, indoor bowls, art therapy and much more. Thank you so much to the team for being so inviting and cant wait to finish editing the video so you can see it.

Another week has flown by and we are nearly at the end of  January 2020, crazy.

Hope to see you all soon at our network meeting next month. 10th Feb 12.30 pm in the Council Chambers

This weeks blog post is all about Clean out your inbox week. 
How to organise and clean out your email inbox.

I have to say even though I try my best to keep it clean and organised my inbox for home and work is a little messy. They can be very hard to organise when you get so many each week it's very easy to fall behind along with the endless amount of spam emails from those different websites you signed up to all those years ago. I can't promise this will fix your email clutter but let's see what we can do to help.

Reporting Tools: How to Evaluate Them

Date: 4 Feb, 2020

Time: 1:00pm - 2:00pm NZDT

Cost: FREE

Spreadsheets are the most commonly used reporting tools in the world today. Yet almost 90% of them contain errors. Some may be minor but many are serious and can lead to financial losses. While improving spreadsheet procedures is one remedy, many Not-for-Profits are looking to reporting and dashboard tools that eliminate, or at least minimize, the risks of spreadsheets.

This webinar will guide you in the process of evaluating your options. It won’t tell you what the solution is but it will help you gather the information and ask the right questions to get the solution that will work best for you.
