    NextGen

    Over the past five years illuminate live has set the standard for providing the very best speakers, giving you access to the most relevant, engaging and actionable content.

    We are delighted to bring you illuminate live reimagined for 2020, in partnership with NextGen Planners, featuring an all adviser lineup of speakers handpicked by our guest editor, Rohan Sivajoti.

    NextGen have a strong belief that for financial planners to succeed in the modern era, they have to "be good or be gone". So who better to learn from than a selection of advisers at the top of their game and willing to share their experience, knowledge and expertise to help you drive your business to the next level of success.


    This year illuminate live will take place online but it won't be any less lively than usual. You'll be able to interact with the speakers and your fellow attendees and Rohan will be hosting a live Q&A with his fellow speakers each week.
