Eastern Forum 2024

ONE DAY FORUM - Join us for the Eastern Forum 2024 as we explore the big issues facing the profession and the eastern economy.

Outline:

The R3 Eastern Committee are pleased to announce the 2024 Eastern Forum.

Given the profession’s important role in dealing with financial distress and economic fallout, this will provide a great opportunity to discuss and debate the new challenges facing Eastern businesses as we emerge from the impact of these last few years.

The Eastern Forum will provide plenty of opportunity to renew past acquaintances and/or make new connections within a packed day of topical sessions.

We very much look forward to seeing you there.
