Webinar: Building financial fortitude

 



In the first webinar in our new ‘Building financial fortitude’ programme, our experts will take a look at the challenges facing the hospitality and leisure sector, consider the various government support schemes that have been introduced and offer practical steps for businesses to take when planning for the future.

Whether wrongly or rightly, the sudden uptick in Coronavirus cases across the UK is being blamed on the hospitality and leisure sector, even though there has, thus far, been little evidence to support this conclusion. With the possibility that England may announce the closing pubs and restaurants in the North from as early as next week, what impact will another set of restrictions have on this struggling sector?

Broadly, the discussion will provide:

  • A review of activity in this sector over the last three months
  • A summary of the current trading environment
  • The key challenges facing many businesses
  • An analysis of the latest government support measures
  • A view on what the shape of the sector might look like in years to come
  • Practical steps and guidance for businesses on how to build financial fortitude

The webinar will take the form of an in-depth conversation between Simon Bonney, a managing director in our Restructuring and Insolvency team, and Philip Shepherd, an independent strategy consultant with significant expertise in the hospitality and leisure sector.
