I’m participating in an event this afternoon called “reinventing pensions”.
All the details are on here
Oli Payne – who is organizing things knows a little about “reinvention”- he works for Ford who are having to reinvent their business model to compete with Tesla and the new paradigm of greener cars.
For Ford, the threat is existential, there is a very real chance there could be no Ford Motor Company in 20 years, there’s no plan B, Plan A had better work – that goes for motor manufacturing as much as the planet.
Pensions don’t have quite the same threat , or at least the people working in the pensions industry, who will be attending this event, don’t. Which is very much the problem.
Some aspects of the way we do things need a good boot up the arse and I hope whoever is judging the shenanigans this afternoon will be asking what kind of impact the proposed innovations are going to have.
So if you can get to the City of London this pm – sign up – there’s still a space for you
You can register up to 4pm for the event from thislink
