The collapse of Carillion, BHS and Patisserie Valerie are just some of the financial scandals which appear to have overridden the expected norms of British industry and damaged public trust in the financial sector’s integrity.
How can we rebuild public trust? In this all too often abstract age where precedent and order appear to be re-written on an almost daily basis, what actions can restructuring and insolvency professionals take to reassure the public?
Join us for the 9th annual Restructuring and Insolvency Conference where we will be lifting the lid on some of the last year’s crises. Featuring expert analysis, smarter working techniques to improve your efficiency, and a focus on trust and transparency.
