Next week: Masterclass on projecting yourself with confidence

On 17 April, we will be hosting another in our Masterclass series, aimed at increasing the confidence of women working in all areas of tax. We would particularly encourage younger women to attend, but the session is open to all.

Paula Ruffell will explore what confidence looks like and how you can rise to new challenges, seize opportunities, deal with difficult situations, and take responsibility if and when things go awry. 

See our event page for more details and registration.

  • Giorgia Maffini is a senior tax economist at the OECD
  • Lizzie Arnold is a senior tax policy advisor at HM Treasury
