CICM East Scotland Branch – Tough Talk (2 CPD hours)

22 May


Tough Talk!

With so much happening; Brexit, general elections and even the prospect of Indeyref2, one wonders where we will all be in the coming months. So we have assembled an expert panel to debate the current issues that face us all (not a political debate), as individuals, families and in business.

Our TV screens are plastered with it, newspapers covered in it and venture near the water cooler or coffee machine, there is no escaping it …. the chat about Brexit, the European Union, the economy, independence ….

The delegates will each give their own views (rightly or wrongly) on these hotly debated subjects before opening the discussion to the floor where we expect the dialogue to be interesting, if not a little controversial at times. The panel will address issues such as insolvency, credit management as well as insurance and the law. How changes may affect business and even our own pockets.

Delegates are asked to arrive for 17:50 for a 18:00 sharp start. The event will conclude around at 20:00.

We ask that you register your attendance by dropping a quick email to Admittance is by registered guests only.
