TMA UK are pleased to be teaming up with IFT once again, their joint Midlands meeting will be held on the 10th October at the Birmingham office of PwC.
Our speakers from PwC will begin by telling the story of Carillion from their perspective. Given the publicity this construction giant generated through its collapse this should prove to be an interesting talk for independent and corporate members alike.
Last year, PwC hosted an IFT meeting and webinar on the funding market. Twelve months on, it will be interesting to hear how the market has changed and what can be expected over the next year.
