The Devising Centre.

Inspired by members from The Harvard Club who, over dinner, would hold a ‘devising centre’, to discuss some of the most pressing, global challenges they were facing at that time, The Verve Group are hosting the first of an exclusive series of networking events, bringing together the leaders of the UK’s largest and most progressive financial advisory firms to discuss some key topics and challenges within the market.

The focus from the Harvard dinners was simple; in light of the particular issue they were focusing on at that time, each person was to leave the dinner with the answer to the following question:

The Devising Centre from The Verve Group is:
