This year’s autumn roadshow series will be taking place online, and we’re really excited about the possibilities that this provides us with. We’ve developed a number of a creative and innovative approaches to deliver the information you need to support you in your role as an Insolvency Practitioner.
Alongside information and discussion on the New Corporate Insolvency and Governance 2020 Act, and the areas within the Act to be particularly aware of, such as monitor, expect interactive sessions with an IPA Inspector to help you prepare for a positive monitoring experience, as well as the opportunity to network with your peers.
IPA President Kevin Hellard will be chairing a series of live panel discussions on your experiences through the Covid-19 response situation and what this means for insolvency in the autumn – more to be announced!
