2019 R3 Northern Conference

19-20 September

Cottons Hotel & Spa
Manchester Rd,
Knutsford WA16 0SU


The Northern Conference provides an excellent opportunity to catch up on the latest changes and projections for the profession from our fantastic line-up of speakers, as well as network with fellow professionals from around the northern regions.

Join us as we explore the big issues facing the profession and the Northern economy during a period of rapid change. Our experts will cover topics including ethics, GDPR, Carillion and public sector outsourcing. Given the profession’s important role in dealing with financial distress and economic fallout,  we will discuss the challenges facing the region and what the Northern Powerhouse could mean.

And we’ll be looking to the future – at R3’s Strategic Plan, the impact of technology, Brexit and other changes on the profession and the prospects for the region’s economy.
