CREDIT TODAY, in association with SKSI, the professional services company providing expert insight and advice to businesses, is pleased to announce the inaugural Keep Britain Solvent webinar looking at some of the challenges facing the credit industry when keeping businesses afloat.

The webinar will take place at 14:00 to 15:15 on Thursday 6 May and is free to attend.

Is the Roadmap to Freedom a Ticking Timebomb for UK Plc?

As the UK emerges from Covid lockdown and people are starting to get back to “normal” Credit Today, working with SKSi, have brought together a panel of experts to discuss the challenges that lie ahead for UK Plc, as part of its “Keep Britain Solvent” campaign.

Coming out of lockdown may not see the desired return to business as usual and companies potentially face cashflow issues, rising taxes, and the ending of Government support. 

We will be looking at the steps that business should be taking to give them the best possible future and examining actions that lenders can take to protect their investments in UK businesses. This will include discussions on:

  • Withdrawal of Covid support measures 
  • Warning signs for lenders 
  • Practical measures to protect your position

The panel will consist of: 

Alistair Dickson, Director of SKSI & Head of SKSI in Scotland. He specialises in restructuring and insolvency of distressed trading and property companies and undertakes assignments for both Company and Lender. Alistair has worked with Business Owners, Company Directors, Lenders across all classifications and Private Equity.

Damilola led FSB’s response to the provisions of the Corporate Insolvency and Governance Act 2020, putting the small business perspective to Government, Practitioners and Membership bodies. She advises small business owners regarding their obligations under the Act, as well as other insolvency-related legal obligations.

Daniel Sejas, Partner, Harrison Clark Rickerbys Solicitors and Head of London Restructuring and Insolvency team. Daniel works for licensed insolvency practitioners, boards of directors, creditors, distressed lenders, and debtors in all aspects of both corporate and personal insolvency law.
