Paul Smith, CEO

Hello all. I was honoured to meet so many past IPA leaders at the recent Past Presidents’ Luncheon, held at the striking Middle Temple in central London. Thank you to all those who attended for what was a great afternoon.

Thank you also to those who gave us feedback on the Personal Insolvency Conference. It seems it was appreciated by many of our attendees, and was another opportunity for our members to renew professional acquaintances face to face. We feel extremely fortunate to have been able to complete our in-person events just before Omicron began to really take a grip. Feedback on our events is collected regularly, is highly useful and is also welcomed on an ad hoc basis to

I was delighted, as were all our staff and Board, by the IPA’s success as Education and Training Provider of the Year at the TRI Awards, reflecting our continued commitment to education and training in the sector. The accolade came at a great time, as we will in the coming months be releasing information on next year’s events programme.

I look forward to leading the IPA in 2022 and keeping our members well informed on all developments in the profession.

Compliments of the season to you all. 2021 has been a tough year, but I hope you all have a happy, safe and healthy break over the coming weeks, come back refreshed, and enjoy even more success in 2022.
