Just a quick reminder – the WiT AGM will be held before the panel event on 20th November. All the details on the event page!
For the third of our annual debates, being held at Pinsent Masons in London, we will discuss how multinationals should be taxed – an area where it is particularly hard to reconcile the views of business, the public and other stakeholders such as NGOs.
Our four speakers will bring a range of perspectives:
- Anna Elphick is responsible for all tax matters in Asia and Africa for Unilever plc
- Giorgia Maffini is a senior tax economist at the OECD
- Lizzie Arnold is a senior tax policy advisor at HM Treasury
- Alexandra Redhead is an international taxation and extractive industries consultant
Please join us for what we are sure will be a lively debate, followed by drinks and canapes kindly sponsored by Brewer Morris. Registration will be from 5.30pm with the debate starting at 6pm, and tickets are available via Eventbrite.
We are delighted to welcome you to an evening masterclass session on career coaching, on October 17th at Old Mutual in London.
Anna Linstead (Career coach, formerly Tax Manager at Old Mutual Group) will take participants through a series of exercises to understand more about the world of career coaching. From this masterclass you’ll take away:
- Do I need a coach?
- What would the benefits of having a coach be?
- How do I get buy-in from my employer?

The West Midlands Women in Tax branch will launch on October 10th, with an event introduced by the Women in Tax founder, Heather Self, a partner at Pinsent Masons, followed by training on speed networking delivered by Liz Heathfield, also from Pinsent Masons. Your training will then be put into action by a short speed networking session followed by canapes and drinks.
The structure of the evening is as follows:
17:45 – Registration
18:00 – Event start
19:00 – Canapes and drinks
While the branch will have events which are open to all (women and men) with an interest in tax, this inaugural event will be focused towards women working or wanting to return to the tax profession.
We’re adding in an extra breakfast meet up on July 4th, at Pain Quotidien by St Pauls as usual – the IBA conference is on in London and there are a number of international WiTs attending!
We are very excited to welcome career and leadership coach Jo Maughan (www.jomaughan.co.uk) to our next Women in Tax masterclass event on March 7th, at 5:30 for 6pm.
Jo will deliver a session titled “Empower yourself – the key to confident influencing and impact”. In this session, Jo will share stories about how, despite being a successful Tax Director, she used to struggle with influencing and impact. She will explain what she did to enhance her skills and where she is now. She will share her experiences on developing a better mind set and learning to handle one’s ‘critical inner voice’. She will show you a tool to tune into your critical inner voice and lead you through a practical exercise. There will be plenty of time for discussion and Q&A.
Mazars are kindly hosting this event for Women in Tax, and tickets are available at Eventbrite.
Our Masterclass Series are small, practical workshops where we welcome women working in or wanting to return to the tax profession (such as accountancy, law, in-house, academia, and government).

Tax & the Media (communicating your approach to tax and responding to interest)
PwC is hosting this Women in Tax seminar on Thursday 5th January 2016 at 5.30 (for a 6pm start) at their 7 More London Offices, SE1 2RT.
Attitudes and behaviours of companies, individuals, advisors and authorities continue to generate media, political and public attention. More and more of us may be expected to articulate a clear position on tax, whether helping your organisation’s PR team, or dealing with media directly.
Stella Amiss and Laetitia Lynn will share their experiences of how stories develop, and views on getting a clear message across. There will be plenty of time for questions and perhaps an opportunity to practice!
Stella Amiss is PwC’s head of tax policy, reputation and regulation, and also an international tax partner. Laetitia Lynn is Head of Tax Communication Strategy at PwC, and has an extensive background in public relations.
As with all Masterclasses, the evening will be a great chance to meet others from across the tax profession.
