Are you an outsourced paraplanner?
Whether you’re the only employee of your paraplanning practice, or you lead a paraplanning powerhouse with employees and a hefty bank of clients, outsourced paraplanners share lots of things in common.
You just do.
But here’s the thing: despite the growing number of outsourced paraplanners in the UK these days, opportunities to get together to talk only about things that matter in the outsourced world, are surprisingly few and far between.
Why an event for outsourced paraplanners?
At last year’s Big Day Out, we invited Christina Georgiou and Andy Schleider to host a drop in session for participants who were starting out as outsourced paraplanners, thinking about it, or already were. (The session was an IRL version of the ‘Outsourced Paraplanners banter + chat group’ hosted by Andy on WhatsApp.)
The popularity of that session illustrated three things (1) the appetite to get together face-to-face as well as via messaging apps (2) the role the Assembly can play to bring outsourced paraplanners together and (3) how the Assembly can support informal networks that already exist for outsourced paraplanning.
After all, it’s exactly what the Paraplanners’ Assembly has always been about since our very first gathering in 2013: creating spaces – in person and online – that spark collaboration and conversation. Spaces where paraplanners can exchange views, learn things, fix things and share things.
Switch off. Show up. Join in.
Here’s our invitation: set your notifications to ‘do not disturb’, click on the Zoom link in your event confirmation and gather with other outsourced paraplanners across the UK for an hour of conversation, ideas and practical insights.
There’s nothing to prepare. Just come along ready to share your answer to one question:
‘What’s on your mind today?’
Spaces are limited. Save your spot now.
