 Then provide recommendations on financial performance and management for future reporting cycles, including: recommended revisions to the budget you prepared in order to deal with contingencies (consider revisions to the conference if you are using the case study)at least one proposed future cost for the next reporting period (if you are using the case study, estimate the conference fee for 2021/2022 conference assuming attendance of 70 people and to make a profit of at least 20%). Make sure you show your calculations.
Draft an email to your superior/manager to make the recommendations for future improvements.
iYour email should be addressed to the superior(s) and other managers who are associated with the budget. Use appropriate email conventions and protocols. You will be assessed on this.
