What's going on in your region

Regional events

CIPFA North Wales North West Event - There's a Leader in you somewhere


5 July 2019, 10.00 - 15.30

With many people home working or working on different sites, we will also look at how to lead when teams are offsite to ensure team members feel valued, receive the support they need and do not feel isolated.

So even if you feel you are already a great leader or aspire to be one, this event will provide you with the tips and advice as to how you can improve or build your skills and share your own knowledge about what you think great leadership is.

This is a free event but delegates will be charged a fee of £20 for non-attendance if a cancellation is not received within five days of the event date. Lunch will be provided.

We have produced a guideline document on how to use the forum and some best practice hints and tips to help you get started.

You could help your region to support members and students, in a variety of ways as a regional volunteer. We need the help of willing volunteers and have a broad range of opportunities for any member or student who is interested in getting involved.
