What’s New


Diverse People Training Skills Workshop Concept

1. TDSA has appointed Kia Thomas as our Education & Marketing Officer.

She will be taking control over TDSA’s numerous education and training products AND she will take these services into a new dimension, commencing with its own brand and associated marketing.   Stay tuned for our new training name!

2.  Have you thought of asking TDSA to provide its THINK TANK topic(s) in-house?

The new financial year brings new boards and the necessity for a clear understanding of Governance by all board members.

Financial Literacy 

“Financial literacy isn’t just a matter of knowing what you have and your options. It is a matter of planning for life’s milestones.”  (-360 degrees of financial literacy)

Knowing the financial health of your organisation is critical for any Board, as you hold a legal responsibility to its ongoing solvency.

There are numerous reports and formats but can you understand what they are really telling you?

In this workshop you:

  • review the most common financial statements
  • learn the key indicators of good (or bad) financial health, and
  • create a checklist guide to essential financial information you need to know on a monthly, quarterly and annual basi

TDSA can deliver any of its frontline staff modules and THINK TANK topics in-house often at a cheaper p/person price than the public sessions.  For more information on the topics available and/or quote price, contact Kia on
