CALEDONIA, YOU’RE CALLING US AND NOW WE’RE STAYING HOME (AGAIN)
After a brilliant day at our inaugural Scottish Home Game conference last year, we are feeling emboldened and right up for doing it all again. So I’m pleased to be able to tell you that Home Game #2 is go and will be on the afternoon and evening of Thursday 28 May.
The idea of Home Game is to provide a chance for those of us in the long-term savings and investments game plying our trade in Scotland to have a chance to discuss the big issues of the day, and where it’s relevant bring out a Scottish perspective. We’ve got an astonishingly vibrant sector up here – we want to celebrate that.
Last year we covered topics like keeping talent in and attracting it to Scotland, our strength as a fintech destination, trends in the advisory market, regulation, forging closer links between academia and financial planning firms and lots more.
WE’VE ONLY GONE AND GOT YOUR ACTUAL CARL RICHARDS
The agenda is still forming, but we’re quadruple chuffed to have the incomparable Carl Richards of Behavior Gap as our keynote speaker in what we are 97.8% certain will be his first Scottish appearance. Most of you will know Carl, but those of you who don’t should check out www.behaviorgap.com. No-one is better at punching through complexity and presenting financial planning concepts in a way that real people can understand. You need to see this session. And all the other ones too, but we haven’t sorted what they are yet.
If you work in Edinburgh, Glasgow, Dundee, Aberdeen, the Sneck or points North and are sick fed up of having to go down the road for any opportunity to meet your peers in the industry, network and experience some great speakers, then you’ll like Home Game.
Advisers, platforms, investment managers, providers and troublemakers are all welcome.
This year’s Home Game will take place once again at the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotels on Bread Street, Edinburgh, kicking off at 1pm on Thursday 28 May, finishing about 5.30pm, with a free barbecue and drinks after. We’re hoping it might rain a bit less this time.
Please register here and we’ll tell you when you can buy tickets – won’t be long. Early registrees (that’s not even a word) will get early bird prices that will make your friends GREEN with ENVY and wish they’d REGISTERED SOONER. Maybe. Our venue only holds 90 bottoms and we sold it out last year, so if you fancy it don’t hang around.
Oh, and anyone that wants to do a reversy-Percy and come up from London for it is very welcome to attend too.
