“We live in an age of anxiety and time of stress. And with all our sophistication, we are in fact the victims of our own technological strengths – we are the victims of shock… a future shock. Future shock is the shattering stress and disorientation that we induce in individuals by subjecting them to too much change in too short a time.” Alvin Toffler, Future Shock.
Changing client requirements, new technology developments and more demanding regulations including MiFID II, GDPR, the senior managers regime and market studies into asset management and investment platforms are all combining to make 2018 another year of seismic change and disruption in our market.
And yet while there is much uncertainty there is also great opportunity for creating even better outcomes as the demand for professional financial planning grows ever stronger.
While we might not have a quick fix to help you deal with all of the change ahead, we have pulled together a great line-up of speakers to help you prepare for the disruption ahead.
Join us on 1 February, 9.30am at The Belfry, Birmingham
