This is what our delegates said they enjoyed most about last year’s Alternative Tech & Innovation Leaders’ Summit: Professional Services:


“It was really insightful to hear the common challenges being faced across different professional services, and varying approaches to overcome them. I liked the range (of speakers) – the programme covered all bases, across established players, start-ups, young and old.   Especially appreciated those speakers who were prepared to be controversial.”  Tom Brichieri-Colombi, Mazars

“I really enjoyed the conference; they get better each year, both the speakers, the format and the attendees.” Justin Young, Knight Frank

“The event was very successful. The sessions were extremely useful, gave the stretch we all needed and provided practical advice.” Julie Berry, Saffery Champness

“Insight into range of industries and disruption in each.” Kate Snow, KPMG

“Really interesting to hear a wide mix of viewpoints from across the professional services spectrum.  Alison Devlin, Eversheds Sutherland

“I liked the fact that it wasn’t all about law and law firms! It was really interesting to hear about other professions, in particular real estate.”  Ruth Ling, Taylor Wessing

“I loved meeting other people in similar roles within their respective organisations. It felt a little like group therapy at points: an opportunity to share the issues, the pain and also the successes (albeit with people who you knew really understood the amount of hard work that lay underneath).     I also liked the cross-profession view. It was great to “look up and out” of my vantage point within a law firm and understand the issues that transcend boundaries and industries.” Sarah Chambers, Ashurst

“Really excellent content and lots of confident experienced speakers.”  Abby Ewen, BLM

“Great content and high quality, engaging speakers. I liked the variety of formats and especially the Samoan Circle. The breadth of professions and viewpoints was really useful and enlightening.  Overall – I thought the conference was one of the best I have attended.“  Michael Burne, Carbon Law Partners

“Interesting to hear insights from leaders across professional services how they are meeting the challenges and opportunities that are presented to the industry.”  Duncan Eadie, Charles Russell Speechlys

“Connecting with professional services colleagues across our various industries.”Rachel Roberts, Burges Salmon

“To network with other professional services and find out where everyone is on their battle against the buzzwords!”  James Berridge, Smith & Williamson

“Speakers very knowledgeable. Great chance to see what other leaders are doing.”  Orla Flint, Smith Cooper

“Superb quality of talks.”  David Blayney, Searle Court
