Why you should attend

Independent expertise

Twice a year Illuminate online takes to the road, touring four venues around the country to deliver in-depth workshops delivered by independent subject matter experts in four key areas of practice development. From succession planning, compliance, tax and technical, marketing, networking and influencing, social media and coaching.

CPD accredited

Each illuminate live day is free and provides four hours of CPD points. You'll leave feeling inspired, full of fresh ideas, and ready to tackle your own business challenges in creative and innovative ways. You'll also spend the day rubbing shoulders with other Nucleus users from your area. And there's always pretty good free lunch.

Dave Cook

"Great day with valuable subjects covered by excellent presenters. I came away with loads of really useful tips and four hours of structured CPD - what else could you ask for?!"

David Cook, managing director, Pentagon Independent

Illuminate technical live – register your place

To compliment the recent launch of our technical studio we are running a series of events where you'll get the chance to meet the product technical team face-to-face during interactive presentations.

The first round of events will be held throughout June and you can register for your preferred location by using the registration tab above.

To support you with changing legislation and regulations, our product technical team will be providing regularly updated support through the illuminate website. The support will include literature, FAQs, pensions technical factsheets and training materials which will be housed under the technical studio.

We aim to make the complex simple by taking on technical legislation and regulations on pension, investment bonds and investments, and translating them into bite-sized chunks of information which are easy to understand.
