CPC Annual Event 

Following on from the success of our first ever 1-day conference in 2023, we will be hosting another 1-day event for 2024. Last year sessions included case studies from members, talks from our actuarial and legal partners, and guest speakers from The Pensions Dashboard Programme, The Living Pension and Pensions for Purpose. To avoid being in a meeting room all day the location was split with the morning sessions held at Isio offices, and the afternoon sessions a short walk away at our then legal partner's offices. The walk over included a stop off at Haz Restaurant for a delicious and entertaining long lunch. For 2024 we will build on this format and of course include another entertaining lunch! 
Location: London (in-person only)
