Why should I attend IMA Conference 2019?
If you haven’t attended conference before, here’s what one 2018 attendee had to say about her experience:
“Meeting advisers from so many channels and styles of advice always leads to some great conversations and new ideas. The ‘line up’ is always relevant, you will find you actually are interested in the speakers throughout the 2 days, it really is all about you…
The workshops are informative and do tend to be extremely lively and productive, the day is not another ‘sit and listen’ event.It can provide re assurance that things are changing, in the right ways for the right reasons… You do tend to come away from the conference energised and refreshed.
Yes you can have a fun day at the conference; you are attending a very large room full of people as passionate as you about what we do. There is a lot of laughter throughout the day. Likely to be the friendliest and most enjoyable bit of networking you will do all year.”
