Maxwell Davies and FSB are delighted to announce Kent’s first

Debt and Mental Health Conference for Professionals in Financial Services

About this Event:

Insolvency Practice Maxwell Davies, supported by the Federation of Small Businesses (FSB), proudly present the “Debt & Mental Health: The impact on business & our families” conference.

This half-day conference is the first of its kind event to be hosted in Kent. Born out of the growing concern for the well-being of clients: directors, individuals and creditors struggling with financial difficulties.

Ruth Duncan, director of Maxwell Davies and Deborah Turner, national lead for Women in Business, FSB, together with panellists, join their campaign to raise awareness of the issues surrounding debt, eradicate the stigma of debt and discuss practical ways in which we can provide further support to our clients whom we believe are a risk of suffering mental health issues arising from problem-debt.

Who should attend:

  • This half-day event is open to a wide spectrum of stakeholders across the financial sector. Especially those who deal with SME owners and individual clients in financial difficulty who are likely to carry an emotional burden of debt.
  • The highly practical event will provide tools and resources necessary to spot the signs of a business in trouble and ways of tackling the debt in a holistic way.

What will we cover:

  • The conference will cover a wide range of topics related to the issue of debt presented from the expert perspective of insolvency practitioner, tax specialist, main business advisory body and the leading charity.


We are delighted to confirm our keynote speakers:

  • Sue Nelson: Breakthrough Funding
  • Dr Caroline Jessel: Dandelion Time
  • Mike Cherry: National Chairman of the Federation of Small Business
  • Cllr Diane Marsh: Deputy Cabinet Member for Adult Social Care and Public Health
  • Deborah Turner: FSB National Lead for BAME Women in Business, and Area Leader for Kent

More speakers to be confirmed shortly.


  • Including individual presentations, two expert panel discussions, followed by a Q&A session.

Join us for a thought-provoking and informative morning. Let’s talk about debt.
