NEW FOR 2020


DISCUSSIONS IN THE ROUND - AN EXCLUSIVE NETWORKING OPPORTUNITY  FOR PLSA FUND MEMBER DELEGATES

Discussions in the round offer a fantastic opportunity to network with up to 20 pension scheme peers whilst discussing a particular topic of interest. Each session is led by an industry expert. Open to PLSA Fund Member delegates only. Each session is pitched at differing levels of experience. Pre-registration is essential. Further information and registration available here

LIGHTNING ROUNDS IN THE LEARNING HUB – OPEN TO ALL ATTENDEES

Lightning sessions are 10 minute, quick-fire presentations that articulate a topic in a short, sharp, insightful, and clear manner. Watch the experts under pressure as they educate and enlighten you. If you like what you’ve heard, there will be Q&A and networking at the Lightning Q&A area, opposite the Learning Hub, after the session. Each session is pitched at a particular level of experience. No pre-registration required. See the programme for more details.

INTRODUCTION SCHEME FOR NEW ATTENDEES

 We’re launching a scheme to welcome new delegates to the event and industry in general. If you haven’t attended the conference before, or would like to maximise the opportunity to network peer-to-peer at the event, we are launching groups to help make that easier and less daunting. You’ll be connected with other new attendees and have an introduction to the event by a representative from PLSA and a guide to the different types of sessions that make up the programme. I you’d like to register for this initiative please email [email protected] by 28 February.
