Ifs sets up third Skills Exchange Day

The ifs School of Finance is holding its third Skills Exchange Day, with rugby players, lifeboat crew and airline staff sharing transferable skills with the financial services industry.

The one-day event on June 22 in the City of London provides a forum for teams from businesses across a range of disciplines to come together and learn skills from beyond their professional sphere which could prove useful in their own role.

This year’s event will feature four workshops from the Royal National Lifeboat Institution, Adam Grainger from Wasps Rugby Club, Barnardo’s and Cabin Crew, an airline recruitment and training organisation. It will be chaired by Skills Exchange Network founder and innovation leader Hamish Taylor.

Ifs dean of higher education Martin Day says: “The feedback that we have received from previous participants of the Skills Exchange Day has been overwhelmingly positive, a mark of the quality of the learning experience. This year’s event promises to build on that success. We have some excellent workshops lined up, with experts from across a range of fields and business models.”


Positive feedback

There is an ongoing misconception that the consumer media are less supportive of IFAs than they might be. In fact, it is fair to say that IFAs enjoy unrivaled support in the consumer personal finance arena. A quick look at’s Blue Book goes some way to underline just how supportive both groups are for each other.
