    Focusing on
    what matters

    Illuminate live returns this September with in person events taking place in Glasgow, Leeds and London. There's also the chance to join us online in October.

    Illuminate live doesn't have any product push from Nucleus, or anybody else, and is entirely focused on improving you and your business. Spend the day being enlightened, entertained and challenged by our brilliant speakers and engaging with like minded advisers. All it will cost you is the time away from your inbox.

    Illuminate live is accredited by the CII and attendees can claim up to 4 CPD hours towards the CII / Personal Finance Society member CPD scheme.

    Our speaker lineup

    Tessa Lee

    It's advice Jim, but not as we know it.    How can hybrid advice work for a traditional advice firm?

    Changing client expectations, the need to attract the next generation of advice clients along with increasing pressure to make productivity gains and keep fees competitive is changing the way advice firms do business. With Robo Advisers introducing humans behind the scenes and traditional advice and wealth management firms introducing digital capability we have seen a convergence of these approaches into a new way of delivering advice and service – Hybrid Advice.

    But what does this really mean for traditional advice firms offering a high touch, personalised service and how could it work in practice? Tess will look at what hybrid advice could mean for your business and most importantly why humans - adviser and client - are pivotal in making this work and why you should not let computers run everything!

    If you can’t make it along to one of our face to face events we would love it if you could join us online. All four of our speakers will present their content through our online platform and you’ll have the chance to interact with them and ask questions during their sessions. If you can’t join for all of the sessions you will be able to access the recordings afterwards and receive your CPD certificate.

    A note on safety

    We’d like to assure you that we take everyone’s level of comfort seriously. Whether you’re raring to get back out there networking or are feeling cautious we aim to ensure that everyone who comes along to one of our face to face events feels comfortable and has a good experience.
    While social distancing is no longer legally required in venues we’re significantly limiting places at our events so there will be plenty of space in both the event rooms and catering areas.
    All of our venues are covid-secure accredited and you can read the detail of the measures they are taking below.
