The event hosts a choice of CPD subjects over a full day, it caters for both General and PFS with soft skills also covered. We also offer a Market Place Hall, where insurers and other providers have stands. The sessions are being formulated at the moment and a key note speaker sourced. There will also be a drinks reception to finish the day off and for additional networking.
