The impressive line up of speakers includes Professor Lesley King, and Caroline Bielanska, as well as presentations from amongst others Bloomsbury, of Parkers Will Precedents fame, and key speakers discussing professional indemnity insurance issues within the Will writing community.

This promises to be one of the must-attend events of the year. For further details of the event, and also if you might be interested in discussing the benefits of joining the IPW, please contact the Institute of Professional Willwriters on 0345 257 2570 or via email: enquiries@ipw.org.uk
