This year’s autumn roadshow series will be taking place online, with two of the four events providing emphasis on regional issues.
Alongside information and discussion on the New Corporate Insolvency and Governance Act 2020, and the areas within the Act to be particularly aware of, 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.
Attendance at each roadshow is available at a specially discounted price of £100 and can be used for four CPD hours.
