General Insurance (GI) provider Paymentshield is holding its first-ever live virtual conference that aims to help advisers to tackle the Covid-19 economic impact on the mortgage industry and return to growth.
Taking place on Wednesday 16 September, the ‘Our Changing World’ conference is designed to replicate the physical experience of an industry conference, albeit virtually. Delegates will have access to ‘on stage’ presentations, panel discussions, breakout sessions and interactive expo areas, as well as the ability to network one-on-one over live video.
The conference will feature industry figures from the mortgage, fintech, estate agency and general insurance markets, including speakers from Countrywide, e-Keeper, Rightmove, Mortgage Advice Bureau, Auxilium Partnership Group, HL Partnership, iPipieline, Mortgage Intelligence, Openwork, Property Franchise Group, Quilter Financial Planning, SBG, Sesame Network, SimplyBiz Mortgages, Smartr365 and Spicerhaart.
The central theme of the conference, ‘Our Changing World’, was chosen to reflect the uncertainty facing the financial services industry and help advisers develop strategies for adapting to the new normal, including the leveraging of technology and client data to future proof businesses.
Topics being discussed range from: the impact of Covid-19; research, analysis and predictions in the property market from the UK’s biggest estate agents; how advisers can leverage technology; how Paymentshield is evolving its customer services strategy to help increase new business and customer retention for advisers; and best practice for implementing GI specialists to ensure advisers do not miss out on the GI opportunity.
Rob Evans (pictured), Paymentshield CEO, said: “This is the first time in 12 years Paymentshield has hosted its own conference, but the timing couldn’t be more important. We have assembled experts from across the country in the key industries with one aim: to create a supportive community that helps advisers adapt, thrive and return to growth.
“We are really pushing the boundaries of the capabilities of virtual conferencing, using the Hopin platform to make the event as interactive and collaborative as possible. With opportunities to sit in on panel discussion, network with fellow attendees and ask questions we’re bringing you the full conference experience, but from the comfort of your home or office.”
