Women Adviser Group to hold RDR events

The fourth evening meeting of the Women Adviser and Broker Group is set to take place on September 22, with the first full day event scheduled for November 23.

The evening meeting will be held at the Architas office in London, while the full day event will be held at the RAC Clubhouse in Pall Mall, London.

Consultant hypnotist Katie Glen will be speaking at the evening event on “how to take your business to the next level” and Axa Wealth Management investment sales manager David Tasker will talk about the Architas proposition.
