Company Turnaround in 2013 - Out with the old, in with the new!

13 November 2012

Turn of the Year – Turn of the Company. “Out with the old, in with the new” are familiar words at this time of year; they are also the fundamental principles of corporate turnaround. As we move from this year to the next, our three speakers – a lawyer, a financier and a practitioner - will look back at the old year and help us to prepare for the new. In a nut-shell: review refocus and get ready.

Time will be allocated for questions and answers. Attendees are invited to participate in some quality networking and enjoy the hospitality provided by the sponsors for the evening

As Gold Sponsors of the Turnaround Management Association (UK) our guests attend for free to this CPD qualifying event.
