NW Finance Director Lancashire Event November 2021


Our next quarterly event is on Tuesday 16th November 2021 at Leyland Golf Club.

About the event:


The NW FD Network is run in association with AFR Consulting, MHA Moore & Smalley and Barclays.

Our mission is to help Finance Directors and Senior Financial Controllers to continue their personal development through:

• Observing key note speakers

• Expanding personal networks

• Exchanging knowledge and ideas with peers

• Receiving technical updates

What the Event Will Cover:

Your employees are the lifeblood of your business and losing key employees can cause significant disruption and financial loss. So how can you attract, retain and reward the best people? Tony Medcalf, Tax Partner at MHA Moore and Smalley will cover various options worthy of consideration, including tax advantaged share schemes and employee ownership trusts. He will explain the financial and non-financial advantages and disadvantages of each option in turn.

Emma Plachciak, Director of Puzzle HR Solutions Ltd will then draw on 18 years of HR experience to deliver her unique insight into the war for talent. Emma will use recently published CIPD research and insight from the HR community to set out the issues around attracting and retaining the best talent for your business.

Finally, we shall be joined by Jonathan Allatt, FX Sales, Corporate Banking at Barclays. Jonathan manages a portfolio of clients across a number of industry segments. His role is predominantly focused on supporting clients to manage their FX exposure. He will be discussing:

• What are the key themes impacting the FX markets?

• How might the budget impact GBP?

We will end with a Q&A session where attendees will have an opportunity to direct their questions to our panel.
