PFS Festival 2022 opens to registrations
Registrations are now open for the Personal Finance Society’s Festival of Financial Planning, one of the largest UK Financial Planning events.
The two-day festival was last held in 2017 and attracted nearly 3,500 attendees.
It featured keynote speeches, a major exhibition area, live music and entertainment.
The event will be held once again at the NEC, near Birmingham on Tuesday 1 November and Wedneseday 2 November. Attendance is free but people who book and fail to attend may be charged a £50 non-attendance fee.
The festival, twice deferred due to the pandemic, will welcome Paralympian Baroness Tanni Grey-Thompson as a keynote speaker.
The event is expected to provide 11 hours of CPD over the two days.
Baroness Grey-Thompson will talk to Personal Finance Society members about her life story and explain how her focus on planning and teamwork – combined with determination – underpinned her success and medal haul over 16 years and five Paralympic Games. She will reflect on the core attributes needed to achieve 11 gold, four silver and a bronze medal at the Paralympic Games.
Sarah Lord, President of the Personal Finance Society, said: “Baroness Grey-Thompson will inspire Financial Planners as they seek to maintain their own peak performance while helping their clients overcome the cost of living crisis everyone faces this year.
“The long-awaited return of our Festival of Financial Planning will demonstrate how collectively we continue to build a strong and sustainable profession for the future whilst at the same time showcasing the true value that Financial Planning brings.”
Caroline Stuart, Vice President of the Personal Finance Society, said: “The Festival of Financial Planning is the ultimate event for everyone within the Financial Planning community. It really has something for everybody – from Paraplanners to those in compliance through learning and development to investment, retirement and later life specialists.”
Mark Hutchinson, membership director for the Personal Finance Society, said: “We are so excited to be able to bring the community back together at last to showcase and celebrate the value of Financial Planning. As well as some incredible practitioners taking to the stage there will be lots of new features to look forward to as part of this year’s innovative event.”
