Registering For Our Events

To attend our family office forums, we may ask you to provide us with your email address, and other information. We may use publicly available information on the Internet (such as LinkedIn) to verify that your email is valid, along with other information you provide at the time of registration, so we can assess your suitability and the most feasible capacity to attend our event. Any information you provide is stored in our secure database and is used to create and/or add to your private profile with us (as a speaker, partner, delegate, or any other type of event participant). 

If you are attending one of our events, we may ask you for further information such as your dietary requirements, passport details and any special needs or requirements in accordance with the Discrimination Act 2010. This information will be treated with the utmost respect and will only be used internally, for logistical purposes, for liaising with you and ensuring that you receive all relevant information, and have a comfortable and enjoyable experience at our event(s) you will be attending.

Please be assured, that we never pass any information and personal data we collect at registration to our event sponsors, or to any third parties. We may let you know if someone has raised specific interest to get in touch with you, and then it is up to you whether you accept an introduction to them. We will always ask your explicit consent before any introduction.

We may only share anonymised attendance charts with amassed information on the type and calibre of the forum participants in our post-event reports. See an example here. (to be linked)
