The purpose of this joint event between TMA UK and LBS is to introduce the personal journeys of the selected professionals, working in a variety of turnaround and restructuring roles. The event is open to anyone; students and professionals without prior distressed experience are especially welcome. The panel discussion will be followed by a fun and informal networking reception with snacks and drinks on LBS campus.


The event will be covered by the Chatham House rules, which means that nothing said within the lecture theatre can be shared outside, and thus, no audio or video recording will be allowed during the event.

COVID - Delegates please do not attend if you have any symptoms, can we also advise that you take a test in the 24 hours before attending and 24 hours after attending.
