Training & Competence conference 2002-03

This year&#39s annual Taxbriefs Training & Competence conference has been devised to analyse how T&C is working in practice, a year after N2.

It is essential that all those responsible for training & competence fully understand the implications of the shortly-to-be-unveiled FSA examination regime. This conference will be one of the earliest opportunities to learn about this direct from the FSA&#39s head of training and competence, industry training and business ethics, Professor David Jackman.

Together with some of the leading industry exam providers, the first morning promises a unique opportunity to learn what is in store in the near future.

The first day&#39s programme on December 3 (promoted by Taxbriefs and sponsored by SOFA — The Society of Financial Advisers) has been designed to appeal both to retail and wholesale professionals. The second day&#39s morning seminar on December 4 has been put together to address the particular issues applicable to the wholesale and institutional sector.

On December 3 2002 the conference chairman is Alan Maxwell, group audit and compliance director, Standard Life, and the speakers are: Professor David Jackman, head of training and competence, industry training and business ethics, Financial Services Authority; Lucy Courtenay, qualifications director, Chartered Insurance Institute; Tony Tudor, director, Institute of Financial Services; Liz Chiswell, head of training and development, Gerrard; David Paterson, compliance manager, Standard Life; Ian Patterson, partner, Patterson Sales Training; Mark Scott, head of technical training and T&C, Prudential UK and Europe, and Nick Bamford, managing director, Informed Choice.
