PMA workshop on budgets
The Production Managers Association is holding a workshop called Budgets Explained for production co-ordinators and other industry professionals.
The two-hour session will explore how to prepare a budget in Excel and demonstrate how to get the best out of your cost monitor.
Key points of the workshop include balancing editorial ambitions with budgetary constraints, understanding the importance of the budget in the bigger picture and building confidence in managing fluid schedules.
The event is on 6 March in central London and costs £20 for co-ordinators on the PMA's Recommended Co-ordinators' list and £35 for others, or £30 each for groups of three or more.
