In the run up to International Women’s Day on the 8th March 2020, join the TMA Network of Women on the 12th February 2020 for a chance to participate in some informal networking over breakfast with like-minded women before taking your seats to hear from a panel of inspirational women in the insolvency and restructuring industry and take part in an exciting and rousing female focused discussion.

The Panel will discuss their thoughts on female leadership and women’s initiatives, drawing on their own personal experiences as well as discussing challenges they have had to overcome and sharing their anecdotes.

This event will give attendees an opportunity to participate by taking part in interactive surveys, as well as the unique opportunity to ask the panellists questions, not only about their work, but also about their journey to become an influential name in the industry.   
This event is open to female members of TMA and their colleagues. TMA members can sign up and attend for free and a fee of £20 will be charged for any non-members wishing to attend.
