Overview and theme:

With the funeral profession currently facing huge challenges, SAIF’s series of regional meetings brings support and guidance to our members and funeral businesses looking to join SAIF, providing:

  • Information and advice about changes to the profession
  • Guidance about protecting and developing your business
  • Evidence of Continuing Professional Development (CPD) which could potentially be a requirement of all funeral professionals.

We’re delighted that Ian Cass, Managing Director of the Forum of Private Business, will be presenting at our Haydock Regional Meeting. Ian’s subject will be:

The Magnificent Seven issues facing private and family firms today

How to survive and thrive beyond these issues

You’ll have a chance to question Ian following the talk and learn what’s new from SAIF Associate Members, including Golden Charter. There will also be a chance to catch up with other funeral professionals in your area over a delicious meal.
