Leading women in insolvency to discuss route map for reform at Harper Macleod event

The R3 Scottish Women in Insolvency Group (SWIG), chaired by Deloitte’s Judith Howson, will bring together two leading opinion formers from Scotland’s insolvency and finance sectors, at its latest event on the 1 November 2012.

The evening will feature an interactive discussion with Rosemary Winter-Scott, Chief Executive of Accountant in Bankruptcy, and Yvonne MacDermid OBE, Chief Executive of Money Advice Scotland, on their 21st Century Vision for Insolvency in Scotland and the Report on the Summary of Responses to the Consultation Paper on Bankruptcy Law Reform.

It is expected that the Scottish Government’s reaction to the responses will be published at the end of October and this, and what the next steps are, will form a key part of the evening’s discussion.

Established in 2005, the R3 Scottish Women in Insolvency Group (SWIG) was created by Judith to encourage business development and networking among women working in, what has traditionally been, a male dominated industry.

The event will be held at the offices of Harper Macleod LLP, The Ca’d’oro, 45 Gordon Street, Glasgow G1 3PE, from 5.30pm until 8.30pm.

Demand to attend this event has outstripped supply and it is now sold out. Anyone wishing to add their name to the event waiting list can contact Sara Calvert of R3 on 020 7566 4230 or [email protected]
