Yes, this is a very long episode!  Have a listen to short intro to understand more but it is all the audio of more than 10 sessions at the two day conference "Future prospects for charity law, accounting and regulation" held 11-12 April 2019 at Te Papa and providing it all here so accessible to all those who were not in the room but would be challenged and empowered by the content.  I was on organising committee and all of those on it wanted to make the content readily available to others through this platform.  Check out other episodes of seeds podcast for close to 100 interviews with more good stories and challenges. 

We had around 40 speakers including several from overseas and more than 10 sessions.  This was put on by CAANZ, CLAANZ and supported by Charities Services.  These are put in the order they appeared at the conference but you can skip to the right point by looking at this index:
