The SimplyBiz Group has released details of its autumn virtual event programme.
The Group will be running a variety of events including investment forums, intergenerational advice workshops and compliance clinics, as well as technology surgeries.
It will also host its flagship virtual event, the Advice Show, and training and knowledge workshops which will include sessions on supervision, vulnerability and suitability.
In addition to specialists from across The SimplyBiz Group, the events will also feature experts from its partners – Royal London, Canada Life, Just, Orbis, Columbia Threadneedle, Vanguard, Fidelity, BNY Mellon, Nucleus, JP Morgan, Santander, M&G and Schroders.
Simultaneously, the Group is running a ‘Festival of Learning’ through its mortgages division, SimplyBiz Mortgages, featuring events dedicated to niche, later-life and complex lending.
The Group has previously confirmed that it aims to commence a programme of both virtual and physical events going forward and will look to go back on the road when able.
Richard Ardron, marketing director of The SimplyBiz Group, said: “Providing members with access to quality events, learning and training is of paramount importance to us, which is why we moved very quickly when COVID-19 disrupted face-to-face delivery to ensure advisers were not disadvantaged in this area.
“Moving an event programme of this size was a huge undertaking and we have been delighted with adviser engagement.
“We have asked advisers what they would like in the future and 86% have told us that they would like a mix of physical and virtual events, and that’s exactly what we intend to deliver as soon as we are able and it is safe to get back on the road.
“In the meantime, we continue to expand our virtual options and have some exciting new events lined up, as well as some of our more traditional events, which will be given the virtual treatment, such as our Investment Forums, which should prove invaluable in the current climate.”
