The 13th Meeting of Minds Winning Advisers took place on the 11th October 2016 at Tylney Hall, Hampshire. This document summarises key issues raised in the topics discussed during the roundtables that took place on the day.

Winning Advisers is a strategic forum organized by Owen James. It is an opportunity for some 70 plus CEOs and MDs of the top 60-400 IFAs; product and service providers; and industry experts to meet in a neutral environment where they can examine industry issues and opportunities and develop business strategies to address them. 

Participants enjoy access to strategic insight, active involvement in shaping the industry and networking at the highest level.

At the core of the Meetings are a series of boardroom style sessions addressing a pre-researched and pre-agreed agenda, with open discussion led by objective and professional moderators. 

External speakers spark debate and encourage fresh and original thinking.

The next Winning Advisers will take place on: Thursday, 27 April 2017 at Aspire in Leeds. The autumn session will take place at Pennyhill Park Hotel in Surrey Tuesday 17 October.
