NEW For 2014 - ‘In The Boardroom’ Discussion Groups – Wednesday June 18th
With the wide array of regulatory and market challenges facing the industry, we have recognised the need to create time for small group discussions away from the main stage, to allow more open, in-depth discussion of practical solutions in a closed-door environment. At this year’s event we therefore launched practitioner-led, collaborative discussion sessions on key industry topics. In these sessions, the practitioner host presented five minutes of initial thoughts on the topic before opening the discussion to the group, where people shared their ideas, challenges and experiences in that area.
