Following our inaugural conference last year, we will be running this year's event on 22 June in London.

We will be asking:

  • How do you build public and professional confidence and trust?
  • How do regulators get the balance right when taking enforcement action?
  • What are the opportunities–and challenges–of Brexit?
  • What can we do to create the diverse workforce needed in the future?
  • How do we make sure better information empowers, rather than confuses, consumers?

Sign up for this free event and hear the latest thinking - from both inside and outside of regulation.

This conference is aimed at regulators of all professions, policy makers, thinktanks, parliamentarians and academics in the field, as well as the legal profession. You will leave with the latest, most relevant information on where regulation is heading and what this could be mean for the public and professionals.

Places are limited so please book early.
