We have the pleasure of extending an invitation from our strategic partners Smith and Williamson to their next Women FDs’ online event at 10am on Wednesday 24th February. Jenny Batchelor will host the event, she is a partner at Smith & Williamson specialising in corporate tax. Jenny works with growing businesses to help them find commercial solutions to the tax challenges they face.

The session will be running on Zoom with a short introduction and then will be breaking off into groups of 6-8 people in each “room” to facilitate networking and conversation. 

To give some structure to the rooms, Jenny has suggested the following format and discussion topics with flexibility, of course, to cover whatever the room wishes. If you would like to attend this networking event can you give some thought to the following before the session:

  • A short introduction;
  • Any current challenge you may be facing that you would like to share and seek other’s insight and input into;
  • What we can do to help the next generation of women finance directors? This could include, how we identify the people to mentor, what help can we give to make a difference, how you would like to be involved.

Sarah will be attending as increasing the female talent available at FD and CFO level is very important to both her and to EquityFD so it would be great to see FDs from the Equity FD network coming along too .
