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
