Professional Development coming in September...

September is Industry Partner CPD month!

We have two separate fantastic professional development events in conjunction with our two industry partners, Deltek and Marsh.

Our joint professional development event with Deltek, ‘Consulting Leadership – Taking Finance to the Future’ was held on Thursday 2 September when IMC member, Vince Naselli MIMC, joined Ryan Latchford, CFO, ADG Engineering to discuss the impact of digital transformation on finance and balancing innovation with operational effectiveness. If you missed this great session, a recording will soon be available to IMC members via the On Demand page on the website. 

Our second joint session is scheduled for the end of September in conjunction with Marsh, our Gold Partner, who has been providing excellent PI and other business insurance packages for IMC members for over 10 years. Stay tuned as we finalise the details for this session – information will be coming to your Inbox very soon.
