Liz Heathfield is Head of Groups Business Development at Pinsent Masons, the international law firm. With a law background, she spent 20 years in law and tax publishing, latterly as Tax Publishing Director at Butterworths Tolley (now LexisNexis), with responsibility for a portfolio which included Simon’s Taxes, the ‘Yellow and Orange’ handbooks, Tolley handbooks and the Tax Journal. She launched the on-line delivery of these and other flagship works, and helped put the Taxation Awards on the map. Liz was for some years the retained marketing consultant for the CIOT and ATT, and was a marketing director for a leading set of commercial barristers’ chambers in the Temple.

She regularly coaches professionals at all levels on networking skills – she has delivered sessions recently for Grant Thornton, the Oxford University Alumni Association, and on a regular basis for Pinsent Masons. To borrow a phrase from one of Liz’s training super-heroes, she enjoys helping people to be “great at the stuff they hate”, and will share with you her practical tips for developing your network and working a room.

As mentioned previously we are encouraging WiT members to invite clients or HMRC contacts they feel would like to attend the event so please do share this invitation. Anyone working in or interested in tax in the region is welcome, regardless of gender.

Tax & the Media (communicating your approach to tax and responding to interest)

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.
