Tortoise Breakfast ThinkIn – What Are The Lessons Of Neil Woodford? Tuesday 10 September 2019 at 8am.

What are the lessons of Neil Woodford?

The flagship fund of the star City investment manager Neil Woodford closed in June. It’s expected to remain shut until December for its own protection and for its investors’. It’s an episode high profile enough to have had an impact on trust and confidence not just in Neil Woodford but in the City as a whole. What does it tell us about the strength of regulation in finance; about whether the sector plays by the letter or the spirit of the rules; about how much culture has changed in the financial industry since 2008? What are the lessons of Neil Woodford?

Special guests include:

Rebecca Jones, Editor, Good With Money
Tony Langham, co-founder and chief executive, Lansons; author, Reputation Management: The Future of Corporate Communications and Public Relations

Chair: James Harding, co-founder and editor, Tortoise

What is a Tortoise ThinkIn?

A ThinkIn is not another panel discussion. It is a forum for civilised disagreement. Modelled on what we call a ‘leader conference’ in the UK (or an editorial board in the US), it is a place where everyone has a seat at the table. It’s where we get to hear what you think, drawn from your experience, energy and expertise. It’s where, together, we sift through what we know to come to a clear, concise point of view. It is the heart of what we do at Tortoise.

Breakfast from 7.45am, starts promptly at 8amIf you are late to a ThinkIn you can ‘SlinkIn’!
