How will I be engaging with people at αlphascope?

We have a dedicated programme of Engaged Conversations Networking that continues for the entirety of the two days of the main conference. This is a variety of informal small-group activities aimed at helping people to get talking and connecting with one another:

Portfolio Manager Showcase

Portfolio Manager Showcase

Present your investment strategy to a room full of investors over lunch. For investors this is a great opportunity to hear about the upcoming opportunities. Managers wishing to participate should contact Rustum Bharucha at rbharucha@icbi.co.uk for more details

Too Hot to Touch
 

Too Hot To Touch

This session takes a special boardroom format. The leaders of the session are facilitators only! The idea of the session is that you have the chance to put your views honestly on some controversial issues. The session is strictly ‘Chatham House Rules’ so nothing said in the room may be attributed to an individual

Strategy-Themed Networking Roundtables
 

Strategy-Themed Networking Roundtables

Sign up on the day and sit with a speaker of your choice to chew over the ins and outs of a given strategy. A cool drink should help to aid the flow of conversation and some excellent content always comes out of these conversations

Evening Networking Reception
 

Evening Networking Reception

For many this will undoubtedly be a high point of the event. It’s a completely relaxed atmosphere and you never quite know who you might meet! It’s also a great chance to re-connect with some of those old friends

Manager-Investor Speed Networking
 

Manager – Investor Speed Networking

You’ll have to be quick if you want to grab one of the speed networking spots! The most efficient way of meeting people: investors down one side, managers down the other and just 3 minutes for a quick intro and exchange of business cards. Meet up to 12 potential business partners over one coffee break!

Small Group Briefings
 

Small Group Briefings

This is your chance to get closer to the αlphascope keynote speakers. Didier Sornette, Maneet Ahuja and Major General Jonathan Shaw will all be hosting closed-door briefings to allow you to ask them those burning questions and to get a deeper, exclusive view of their topic

 

What is My-αlphascope & how should I use it?

My-αlphascope is an online portal that can be accessed via your desktop and via an app that you should download onto your smart phone. Once logged in, edit your personal profile to include as much information about yourself as you can. The more information, the more meeting requests you are likely to receive from fellow attendees! Uploading a photo will make it easier for people to spot you at the conference. You can search the delegate list via the ‘Find people’ button. Leaving all search options empty will allow you to view the entire list. Please note that you will not see yourself on there. Furthermore, My-αlphascope will also allow you to view the conference agenda, the speakers and to plan your individual programme for the event.
