“As a facilitator and trainer Susan Lucato excels. She brings her extensive knowledge of the non profit community and tremendous accounting skills to the table, along with a wonderful ability to connect to her audience and make the subject matter interesting, engaging, and enjoyable.”
Lisa Mort-Putland, Executive Director, Volunteer Victoria
“Over the last couple of years, our organization has undergone significant growth. Our most recent strategic plan called for a complete revamping of our bookkeeping and accounting process.
That’s where Susan came in! I first met Susan at a Victoria Foundation budgeting workshop. I was so impressed with her wide variety of experience – working for a funder, private sector, non profit – a little of everything. She really seemed to understand the reality of the not for profit world.
Within the space of a few months, Susan set up our accounting system; trained staff; consulted on reporting to the Board; helped identify and create needed policies; readied us for year end and recommended an accounting firm.
Susan’s philosophy is to support us to become more independent and work herself out of a job. Our organization has benefitted greatly from having Susan’s expertise. I would highly recommend Susan to work with an organization who is either looking for ongoing bookkeeping/accounting experience or needing a complete overhaul.”
Colleen Hobson, Executive Director, Saanich Neighbourhood Place Society.
“Susan has stepped in as I needed over the past year and a half whilst undergoing surgeries and cancer treatments. Her expertise and uncanny ability to prioritize JEA’s needs has provided me with much needed peace of mind. Though I hate to admit it, she has streamlined a lot of our processes! She’s been an absolute Godsend.”
