Due to the Covid-19 lock down we are changing this to a Directors' Circle Zoom Meeting. Fear not, this virtual session is designed to still include plenty of networking opportunities as well as, of course, topical insights from our main speaker.
For this Directors' Circle we will be joined by Martin Webster, Partner at Pinsent Mason, who will be looking at directors' reporting duties in a time of crisis.
