Jersey Autumn Conference 2

Insightful sessions, invaluable networking opportunity and CPD! 

We've taken member feedback on board and are making some exciting changes to our regional conferences during 2023. You can expect: 

  • a friendlier feel, with more of a workshop style (say goodbye to 'death by PowerPoint') 
  • a more engaging approach, making it easier for you to talk with other delegates 
  • a real sense that this is your community of good practice. 

During the event you will experience a day of topical and insightful business updates which all contribute to your CPD. At the heart of this will be presentations delivered by a number of leading subject matter experts. The conference offers a great opportunity for networking and sharing good practice with your peers, local to where you live and/or work. 

Throughout the day your local PFS regional committee will provide updates on new developments and initiatives from across the Personal Finance Society, helping you stay informed about the benefits of membership and to take away information which may benefit colleagues and others in your practice/firm.  

A detailed agenda will be available approximately six weeks before the start of each round of events.

Lunch and refreshments will be provided. Delegates will be eligible to claim over 3 hours 30 minutes CPD.

Please note the agenda is provisional and may be subject to change. 

As a PFS member, you are permitted to attend one event in each series free of charge at your preferred location.  If you would like to attend more than one and take the opportunity to be a partner, please contact our Partnerships Team for more information.  

Non-members are welcome to attend their first event free of charge.  After this, we will contact you about joining the PFS to be able to access further events and services.
