New knowledge for new businesses.

With a more recent boom of new firms in financial services, how can we provide the best support to those just starting out on their own? Taking the leap into self-employment is daunting for any entrepreneur but in such a heavily regulated industry such as ours, even more so.

Did you pick up a pack?

In true We Are Live style, the first 100 people that registered received a viewing pack in the post. This time around we have a variety of different cocktails and what TV show would be complete without a big bowl of popcorn?! We’d love to see your set up, so tweet your pictures to @GroupVerve and #WeAreLive.

Industry or profession?

Industry or profession? That is the question… We believe there’s a great deal of work to be done on improving standards across the industry in order for us to move forward as a united, respected and celebrated profession. How can we build trust? And whose responsibility is it to hold others to account?

Get your questions answered.

We’re very excited to have David Ferguson joining us later on for a fireside chat with Cathi. Do you have any burning questions you’d like to ask him? Pop them here and we’ll do our best!

Breathe easy.

Stressed about organising a live TV show for 200 advisers? Not us 😉 There’s always time for a moment of reflection with a bit of lunchtime yoga.

Talking about talent.

When it comes to talent, we’re all well versed on the impending threat of the advice gap, every day it gets closer. So now more than ever, we must come together as a collective force to create, co-design and collaborate initiatives that will drive and attract fresh new talent into finance, as well as retaining what we already have.

The lads are here!

We’re very lucky to work closely with the lovely team at Second Draft, not only do they produce That Mint Podcast for us, but are the creative masterminds behind all our video content and live streaming at our We Are Live events. We may annoy them daily, but we’re sure they love us really…

Educating the nation.

During the show we will be covering four key themes that came out of our Evolution event last September, education, talent, profession and new business.

When it comes to education, what does good education look like in financial services? How do we engage and educate the public to understand the benefits of seeking financial advice? And who’s responsible for grassroots education in schools? Fancy being a change maker? Make sure you tune in to see how you can help.

Eeek! We Are Live is finally here.

We can’t quite believe it’s been almost a whole year since our last one (if you missed it you can watch our old episodes back here) and we can’t wait to show you what we have in store for this episode. Our office is currently looking very normal, but stay tuned for how we turn it into a live studio and get a sneaky look behind the scenes…
