Paraplanners launch regional Powwow with ‘Up North’ event

Blog post

Details of regional Paraplanners Powwows have been unveiled with the announcement of the first ever ‘Powwow Up North’ in Leeds on 15 October and plans in the pipeline for a ‘Powwow Down South’.

Powwow Up North organisers Jared Bowers, Claire Goodwin, Jo Hague and John Redmond, who will all be participating in the nationwide Paraplanners Powwow on 19 September, said they wanted to adopt the organising principle behind the Paraplanners Powwow – of gatherings designed for paraplanners by paraplanners – and apply it to smaller gatherings that were closer to home.

Powwow Up North will take place at The Chambers in central Leeds on the 15 October 2013 beginning at 5pm.

Thanks to the support of UBS, complimentary tickets for up to 20 paraplanners are available for the event and are now available to order using the event’s online booking form.

Powwow Up North will adopt a round-table discussion format in which paraplanners can get together to talk about the practicalities of day to day paraplanning life. Ideas for topics that will be up for discussion at the first Powwow North include:

  • Sharing of ideas on processes, such as the review or research process
  • What do you do that the clients love? Are your processes slick and streamlined? Or are you the bottleneck?
  • Platforms and other centralised investment propositions
  • Exam preparation, qualification routes and study tips

The quartet of paraplanning organisers hope to announce a Powwow Down South event later this year.
