Your training session was beyond expectation and the banker engagement was a testament to the level of knowledge and experience you have in this industry. I think it is fair to say that you have just created a seismic shift in the way we support our schools!
John Somerset would be amongst Australia’s most knowledgeable professionals with regard to independent school finances and sustainability. AHISA has valued his passion, knowledge and experience in delivering financial literacy workshops for aspirant and new heads of schools and, by so doing, supporting their professional understanding and leadership.
John has the ability to communicate what many people perceive as complex (accounting and financial business management) in a simple and understandable manner. Our School Board and its Executive Management Group have been enlightened by the Somerset Education report tools via the School’s Business Office over recent years. Add John’s governance training elaboration to our five (5) year data set has been invaluable to generate ongoing, knowledgeable discussions amongst our governing and management teams, about our current and projected financial viability and sustainability.
