At the heart of northern business since 1882

News about Redworth 2020 28 January 2020

A wide range of key topics, the chance to explore the issues with some of the UK’s leading experts and the opportunity to connect with fellow general practitioners – the Redworth Conference offers it all.

If you’re a general practitioner, you know that your clients often expect your expertise to be as varied as their business needs. You may also know that staying up-to-date with the key issues and keeping on top of new legislation and regulations can be a challenge.

The Redworth conference has been designed with this in mind; the programme incorporates topics that delegates have identified as key, so it’s a great opportunity to get up-to-speed with the issues and developments that matter to you, your clients and your business.

From employment law and essential accounting updates, to understanding financial crime; the packed programme covers the hot topics and helps you get to grips with the latest legislation, whilst providing you with the insights and information you need to add extra value to your client offering.

What’s happening at Redworth 2020?

Booking is already open for Redworth 2020, which takes place from Friday 28 February to Sunday 1 March (2020 is a Leap Year) at Redworth Hall Hotel in County Durham.

And whilst the team behind the event is still developing the full programme, a number of expert speakers have already been secured. And with topics spanning the spectrum from tax and accounting updates, to tips to enable you to make the most of new networking opportunities, you can be sure that Redworth will tick many of your main CPD boxes.

Meet the experts

Among the confirmed speakers for Redworth 2020 are personal finance expert Karen Barwick; financial crime specialist Andrew Swan, who’ll be exploring the real world of financial crime; funding expert Yvonne Gale; and one of the UK’s most in-demand tax experts, Rebecca Benneyworth, who’ll not only be delivering an essential tax update but will be taking questions at the perennially popular “Rebecca on Request” session.

We’re delighted that as well as numerous requested returning speakers, there are some new faces joining the line-up, including Stephanie Henshaw – a founder member of ICAEW’s Financial Reporting Facility and its current Chair. Many NorSCA members will know Stephanie from previous events so will understand why she’s long been on the “wish list” for Redworth.

In addition to the technical and business sessions, CABA will be offering advice on how to improve your networking skills, so that you’re always ready to make the most of each and every opportunity.

A powerful network…

Speaking of networking, the conference is a great chance to do just that. All too often, sole practitioners (and those working in smaller firms) miss out on the chance to explore issues, share concerns or simply bounce ideas around with colleagues.

Whilst Redworth is big enough to attract respected speakers, it’s also small enough to allow people to talk openly to each other and share experiences in a relaxed, pressure-free setting.

Plus, because the event is as informal as it is informative, delegates are also able to connect with speakers outside the confines of the lecture room, giving them a rare chance to ask questions and discuss issues one-to-one over coffee.
