Thriving in the “New Normal”

We are thrilled to invite you to join us for this one day in-person conference where we will hear from asset owners, investment consultants and subject specialists on how we should think about our roles, our careers and the way we work in the post-pandemic era. Hot Tabling* sessions will be back in person, alongside a compelling programme to support your professional development, inspire your career journey as a distribution professional and provide tools to help you thrive.

The morning’s sessions will be reviewing and reflecting on the last couple of years, whilst after lunch, our speakers will be looking ahead to what might be in store for us in the future.

The conference will conclude with a drinks reception.

*For those who have not attended an AIMSE event with “Hot Tables” before, it’s an opportunity to connect and network, in small informal groups, with our speakers, asset owners, investment consultants and other industry leaders, and your peers.
