Powwow North of the Border – the informal gathering for paraplanners who live or work in and around Edinburgh

What's it all about?

Powwow North of the Border is back and this time we are heading to Edinburgh. 

Here’s a quick refresh of what a Powwow is. A Powwow is an informal gathering for paraplanners to exchange views, learn things, fix things and share things. If you are a paraplanner in Scotland or on the borders then Powwow North of the Border is for you.

What’s up for discussion?

Anything. Ok, that’s not strictly true. It has to be paraplanning related. Because Powwow adopts ‘unconference’ principles, you get to choose the topics you want to discuss with your fellow paraplanners. Always packed to the brim with topics, we’re guessing this year that MiFID II and GDPR might be hot topics to chat (cry) about, plus there’s always room for sharing tips and thoughts on reports, cash flow, DB transfers, costs and charges and lots more.

If there’s something you’ve been wanting to pick the brains of other paraplanners on, then this is the perfect spot to do it.

We guarantee you’ll leave Powwow North of the Border with some great ideas, answers and tips, all brought to you by paraplanners.
