FPI Professional Digital Convention

Future proof your business by attending this years FPI Professional Digital Convention

It is only natural that many of us are questioning our ability to thrive in a new decade which seems beset by more questions than answers. The 31st FPI Professional Convention, which is being held digitally, will tackle all of these doubts head-on with a range of engaging sessions based around the theme of Future-Proof. “We had no idea how apt the theme would be when we chose it!” says FPI CEO Lelane Bezuidenhout. 

This is one convention you do not want to miss.

Taking the convention digital was not just the right thing to do from a lockdown perspective, it also enabled FPI to secure some really big-name international speakers (not to mention loads of really great local talent).  With talks that will tackle the increasing web of regulatory developments, the implementation of best practice standards, the brave new world of behavioural finance and the truly dizzying rate of technological change, the FPI is leaving no stone unturned in its quest to help you become Future-Proof. 

Other benefits include:

  • Gaining knowledge and insights directly from regulators and captains of industry.
  • Access to digital material put together by the remarkable speakers (more about them later).
  • 11.5 verifiable CPD hours. (General: 5.5 | Ethical 4.5 | Technical 1.5).

Who will be speaking?

We’ve packed this year’s digital convention Programme with top-notch local and international speakers. 

Some of the highlights include:

  • Greg B Davies, PhDis a specialist in applied behavioural finance, decision science, impact investing and financial wellbeing.
