Following the success of the first session in our Spotlight Series, where we shine the light on leading women in the restructuring, distressed and insolvency space, TMA NOW is pleased to announce the second session which will take place on Monday 18th October 2-3pm. 

Pippa Wicks, executive director at John Lewis and former Deputy CEO of the Co-op Group, will be interviewed by Clare Kennedy, Managing Director in Turnaround and Restructuring at AlixPartners, in an online session on the current challenges faced by the UK’s retail market. With a key focus on ongoing supply chain disruption, as retailers warn of product shortages caused by freight issues and other Brexit-related disruption, the session will provide industry insight from a turnaround perspective, in addition to a look-back at the career paths to date of both Pippa and Clare. The session will conclude with the opportunity for open discussion and questions from webinar participants.
