Bookings will soon be going live for one of our flagship events, the Annual Conference. This year’s event will be held virtually on Wednesday 28 April.
Now more than ever, it’s important to seek out opportunities to engage with colleagues and understand changes within the profession. Finding time to see old faces and talk about what is happening in the profession is even more valuable when we don’t have other ways of meeting up.
This year’s conference will offer an interactive learning experience on the current state of insolvency. We will have two panel sessions, the first of which on responding to changing environments, and the second looks at attracting younger people to the profession. Other matters for discussion this year include an Insolvency Service update with Angela Crossley, Head of Insolvency Practitioner Regulation at the Insolvency Service; crypto assets with Aidan Larkin, CEO of Asset Reality; a parliamentary and Brexit update with Rt Hon. Jim Murphy, former Secretary of State for Scotland; a monitoring update with an IPA Inspector; why we need to save charities, with Prof. John Tribe of the University of Liverpool; the creditor view with Sue Chapple, CEO of the Chartered Institute of Credit Management; changing the face of company registration with Martin Swain, Director of Policy and Strategy at Companies House; plus more interesting sessions to be finalised and announced.
As well as having what we hope you agree are an exciting set of speakers from the profession and related fields, the conference will also give the opportunity to network, have your say in the sessions and gain eight hours’ CPD.
Members will be emailed with notification when bookings go live. We hope you will be able to join us.
