Powwow North of the Border – the informal gathering for paraplanners in Scotland

What's it all about?

Powwow North of the Border is heading back to Edinburgh on Wednesday 29 May 2019!

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 will be right up your street.

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.

As well as your top picks, we’re going to dabble in a bit of due diligence, and joining in the chat will be Steve Nelson from the lang cat. We’re also joined by the good folks from Aegon for some of the Powwow. Well, we are using their digs for the meeting!

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

Hold your horses…there’s more…

For paraplanners who come along to the Powwow North of the Border, our friends at the lang cat are not only donating Steve Nelson for the afternoon. They’ve also been kind enough to offer a discount of 20% on ticket prices for their 30 May event, the lang cat live – Home Game. To benefit from this discount, book your ticket to the Powwow below, and then drop us a line at to ask for the discount code for the lang cat event.
