Thinc Destinis conference attracts 700 participants

The financial services provider Thinc Destinis conference for staff and advisers attracted 700 participants last week.

The event took place on Friday September 16 at the Celtic Manor Resort in Newport, Wales.

The celebrity guest speaker was Jonathan Edwards CBE, the former triple jump world and Olympic record holder, BBC sports presenter and London 2012 ambassador.

In addition to presentations from senior management and guests, product providers held workshops for advisers to inform them of the very latest developments.

Thinc Destini was created by the merger of THINC and Destini Financial Services in July 2005.

Simon Chamberlain, group chief executive, says: “What a fantastic occasion. It was the first time the majority of our staff and advisers had come together since the merger took effect and the sense of pride and purpose was immense.

“The speakers were inspirational and the product providers led some very useful workshops. This inaugural conference has clearly set the scene both internally and externally for the future of Thinc Destini.”
