[Cheque Advocacy] content delivered was relevant, insightful, and well summarised

Fiona and Michelle spoke clearly and were easy to hear and understand. The content you delivered was relevant, insightful, and well summarised - no boring waffle. The ppt slides were beautiful and clear and well done. I am a fussy audience, and was kept engaged and interested the entire time. Thank you so much.

This mentoring programme offered by FINZ is an absolute winner

We are a relatively new charity (less than 2 years old) and were interested in the Mentor programme. You connected us with Gwen Green and she has been an inspiration. 

We think this mentoring programme offered by FINZ is an absolute winner.  If all your mentors are as good as Gwen then you should be proud of the work they do to support charities in New Zealand.

We would have no hesitation in recommending the FINZ mentoring service to other charities.

I am singularly impressed by FINZ leadership

I’m consistently impressed with how much FINZ accomplishes for the sector. Including the excellent conference which was one of the major inspirations for our WCFC conference.
