The New Year is the perfect time to set out some new work goals.  But how many times have you made a New Year's resolution and failed to keep it? Resolutions are much easier to make than to keep and by the end of January, many of us have abandoned our resolutions and settled back into our old patterns.

To help motivate and keep you on track of your 2020 resolutions join us for an inspiring panel discussion on 26th February. This event will provide the perfect opportunity for you to revisit and tweak your resolutions as our panel will be sharing their expertise and tips on:

  • Work/life balance – how to manage your time when you have a young family and a demanding job that is notoriously long hours
  • Career development and L&D – how to manage time when you are in education at the same time as working, also learning on the job and getting to grips with a new business – how to stay productive
  • Time management
  • How to prioritise and stay productive

About the Speakers:

Alexandra Goldrein Solicitor - Irwin Mitchell

I specialise in all areas of private family law work, including relationship breakdown, divorce, financial settlements and the arrangements for children.

I have particular expertise in providing advice in respect of divorces involving complicated financial issues, including businesses and pensions, which can be the highest valued assets in a marriage. Expert consideration is needed when analysing the income which pensions are likely to produce and how they should be divided.

Between 2012 and 2016, I practised as a pensions’ lawyer. My previous experience includes advising employers on the impact of their pension obligations on their business, supporting them to achieve their corporate goals such as restructuring, scheme merger, benefit change and funding. I have a good understanding of how businesses work and how this may affect the clients with whom I work.
