    Presenter - John Cato : Solicitor Advocate at Cato Solicitors

    Topic - 'How To Effectively Instruct Your Solicitor and Save Thousands of Pounds'

    John is a solicitor advocate with more than 30 years of experience in litigation. Solicitor advocates are qualified to represent clients as advocates, in the Higher Courts in England and Wales.

    Knowing how to get the best legal advice is vital to you and your business, both for the outcomes you seek and the cost of doing so.

    With his own name identifying his practice, John is perfectly placed to share his knowledge and experience of dispute resolution. Don't wait until it's too late when you need legal advice. Hear from an expert on how to make sure you know what to do (and how), to ensure your unique situation is handled in the unique way you deserve.

    More from John - "My firm provides advice to Corporations and Decision-Makers facing an internal or external dispute.

    I am a highly competent Solicitor-Advocate.

    The benefits of my service include an incisive analysis of the problem and recommendation of possible solutions so it can be properly and realistically managed.

    I have been specialising in litigation for over 30 years - since 1984 when I started as a trainee.

    Working as a partner in a multi-partner practice left me unable to provide a dedicated focus on my clients' interests and my own, highly effective, law and Court tactics.

    In this practice I do not have the pressure of billing targets and management and political considerations. Cato Solicitors is structured to ensure I am left in peace to pursue the best interest of my clients.

    I believe this freedom allows me to honour the high level of trust and confidence which people used to repose in their own Solicitor.

    Larger departmentalised practices with substantial overheads often use a standardised, expensive and pre-determined process, including the over use of trainees and part qualified staff, who progress cases without the experience to see the 'whole wood'.

    Low competence levels can hide in a large firm, but a sole practitioner lives by reputation alone.

    Giving strong advice (or any advice) is often avoided in this litigation assembly line by offering clients recommended options which they have to navigate and decide between, on little more than instinct.

    The Cato Approach.

    You can expect something very different from Cato Solicitors which clients describe as a 'breath of fresh air.'

    Presenter - Victoria Lee of The Moment Photography

    Topic - A Practical Guide to Portrait Photography

    Would you like to learn how to take better photographs of people? Be it your family, loved ones,
    friends or in business? All great portraits, whether they are taken on a camera phone or an SLR
    camera depend on the photographerâs ability to use light and pose the subject.
    The great news is you donât need to understand anything about apertures and shutter speeds,
    as this is not a seminar about technical photography. I will teach you how to think about photography
    differently. You can forget the camera and concentrate on whatâs around you. The camera is actually
    the last thing you need to take a photo - literally!

    About the Presenter
    Victoria Lee: I am a portrait photographer based in North Wales. I donât consider my photography
    as a job. I love to photograph. Whether for my clients, my family or just for me, I love to capture
    images. Combine that with my love of peoples stories and you get why I am a portrait photographer.
    I treasure the images I take of my husband and little boy. I love to capture images for clients knowing
    that, like our own family images, they will treasure them for years to come.

    Content
    How will members benefit?
    By learning simple portrait photography techniques you will be able to concentrate on your subject,
    light and background and have lots of fun taking pictures of people without getting weighted down
    with too much technicality.
    What will they learn?
    I will teach you how to look for the best backgrounds. How to use the light available to you, and how
    to relate to the people you are photographing.
    Please bring along your own camera - It doesnât matter if you have a compact camera, a smart phone
    or SLR. After the presentation we will have a bit of time to go outside and practice some of what we
    have learnt.

    How can you apply it to your Business?
    Maybe you need to take PR shots for your business, or photograph events. By following these
    simple techniques you will be able to take more professional shots to use in your business.

    PLEASE ENSURE YOU BRING YOUR CAMERA ALONG !

    Topic - Rewarding Innovation And Development

    Synopsis:

    There is a common misconception about the type of activity that qualifies for R&D tax credits which means that many companies are missing out on potentially lucrative tax reliefs. The truth is, to qualify, activity simply must seek to attain appreciable improvement to products, services or processes and can apply to any sector. Come and listen to some of our examples. If you find yourself saying "we do that", you may be able to save thousands!

    Content:

    * Background: The Government's commitment to supporting research & development initiatives by making R&D credits accessible to more businesses
    * Potential tax savings
    * What is qualifying activity
    * What is qualifying expenditure
    * Case studies
    * R&D tax relief as part of your overall tax and remuneration strategy
    * Using R&D tax relief to fund future innovation

    About The Presenter:

    Terry Cheesman is an ACA qualified accountant who has been specialising in tax for 15 years. Having established expertise in Research & Development and Capital Allowance tax reliefs, Terry has achieved significant tax savings for clients as well as providing strategic advice.
