The upcoming Adviser Innovation Summit has announced a further two speakers and launched a virtual portal where attendees can mingle with other delegates, event speakers and partners.
Taking place from 25-27 August, this exclusive virtual event now includes a presentation from the Responsible Investment Association Australasia’s Simon O’Connor on myths and trends around responsible investing, and from Volt Bank's Marcus Cann on adopting data and analytics as a core business strategy, in addition to previously announced speakers including futurist Simon Waller and augmented reality expert Jamie Engel.
Brought to you by ifa sister brand Adviser Innovation, principal partner BT and gold partners Feedsy, WealthO2 and Implemented Portfolios, the event will also include new virtual portal functionality allowing conference attendees to network with each other and schedule virtual meetings with event speakers and partners.
Delegates who sign up for the virtual portal will also be in the running to win $1,000 if they visit each partner stand in the ‘virtual exhibition’, and can complete goals to win prizes that will be given away each day of the conference.
