Eileen Maclean invited to join TRI 250

Insolvency Support Services director Eileen Maclean has been announced as one of the members of leading trade journal Credit Strategy’s new TRI 250 group.

Launched at the prestigious UK TRI (Turnaround, Restructuring and Insolvency) Awards 2017 ceremony, held at the Hilton Park Lane Hotel, London, on 18 October, the TRI 250 is a new group of 250 prominent influencers, movers and shakers in the UK insolvency market.

The firm’s training arm, ISS Training, was also shortlisted in the Education/Training Provider of the Year category of the awards.

Eileen, a founding director of ISS and one of the UK’s foremost insolvency trainers and practitioners, commented: “We were delighted to have been shortlisted in these awards against such tough competition. It represents welcome recognition of the significant progress we have made in our training offering. Thanks very much to our amazing team for their hard work and commitment, and to our clients and delegates for their invaluable support and fantastic feedback.

I’m honoured to have been invited to become a member of The TRI 250, and look forward to contributing to its successful development.

In the last year we have greatly strengthened our training team with high calibre recruits, extended our programme to 120 open courses, including our new One Hour Series of webinars, welcomed hand-picked guest speakers to provide supplementary expertise, and added Leeds and London to our existing Edinburgh, Glasgow and Manchester locations.

Our 2018 training programme will be launched shortly.”

ISS Training launches extensive, new training programme for 2017

ISS Training, our award-winning training arm, has unveiled a comprehensive, new directory of courses for 2017 (available to download by clicking here).

 

Eileen Maclean, director of Insolvency Support Services and architect of the new programme, commented:

 

“We’ve further enhanced our training course offering again this year, and it’s packed full with 120 open courses to choose from. As well as a number of brand new courses being offered for the first time, we’re re-running some from previous years due to popular demand.

 

We’ve also invited several well-respected guest speakers from the world of law to join us on some of our courses to provide complementary expertise and perspective. And we’ve teamed up with experts in the fields of marketing and professional development to give our clients wider, relevant learning and development opportunities.

 

In addition, we’ve added Leeds and London to our existing Edinburgh, Glasgow and Manchester locations. In both cities we’ll be offering Insolvency (Scotland) Rules and Scottish Insolvency (both Corporate and Personal) for English IPs courses.

 

As well as our new physical locations, we recently introduced a new online delivery format, monthly webinars, as part of our new One Hour Series. This series of short courses, also offered in person, is already proving very popular with people looking for CPD that fits easily around their work commitments.”

 

We also offer bespoke in-house training, tailored to the specific requirements of an individual organisation. Eileen Maclean added: “Clients are increasingly finding this especially valuable when they have a particular business need, require a confidential environment or simply have a large number of people they wish to develop at the same time. All of our open courses can be run as bespoke courses.”
