Mission Statement

We deliver conferences and events in accordance with our 3 pillars:


  • We pursue excellence tirelessly, for ourselves and for our customers
  • We take pride in being as good as we can possibly be, and always look to do better


  • We work as a team and we succeed as a team
  • We work with our customers and attendees as if they are part of our team to deliver the highest possible results


  • Success is defined as doing something well consistently over a long time
  • We do not strive for one-off successes. We measure our success over many years of high-quality performance and delivery


Safe environment to discuss key topics

Our conferences operate under Chatham House Rules. So no press, and no fear of being quoted. We understand it’s the essential ingredient to open and honest debate.

Topics and content driven by you and your clients

We listen to what you want. We find what your clients want. Then we research with the rest of the industry. The results are conferences that meet the demands and expectations of you and your clients.

Business-development driven

50% of our audiences are from capital-raising entities and investment funds. 70% of our audiences are Managing Director level or higher. This means, you will save time and money by attending our conferences to network with clients and decision-makers, not time-wasters.
