Monthly Meeting - Bushey Sports Club- 10am. The Speaker will be Isabella Segal on "My Transgender Journey"

This very moving and often heart-rending story

Isabella Segal

As well as formidable accountancy experience and skills, Isabella has something different to offer her clients – an incredible life story.

In May 2013, with full support of NLP, she transitioned to Isabella and is now at the forefront of the LGBT business community in London, a prominent member of OUTstanding, a networking organisation for LGBT professionals.

A partner at NLP, Isabella specialises in accounting, auditing, tax planning and financial advice, along with business restructuring and recovery, complex tax enquiries and heads up the forensic accounting division.

Isabella qualified as a Chartered Accountant in 1980, joined Levy Gee a year later and became a partner in 1985. Before joining NLP, she spent 20 years developing her own private practice, advising a wide range of loyal clients.

A problem solver who is ready to embrace change, she understands the challenges that life – and running a business – can bring and is uniquely placed to offer advice in particular to the LGBT business community.

Outside of work she is involved and supports a number of charities including those in the LGBT arena. Other favourite pastimes include cycling, hiking and supporting Arsenal as she is a season ticket holder.
