A: Q2 in 2021.
Q: What advice would you give to the next generation of people working in either turnaround, restructuring or insolvency?
A: Gain exposure to as a wide a variety as possible of work. It stands you in good stead. Sit the JIEB exams after a few years before your student exams become a distant memory!
Q: What do you think is the biggest challenge, or issue, for those working to rescue businesses?
