Tomorrow Club: enjoy a cocktail event, speed networking, and mentor speakers
#TheTomorrowClubwas set up in 2007 to help mentor young professionals joining the private wealth industry. It aims to help members start their business network with other, high-quality wealth professionals. Each group has a controlled mix of private bankers, family offices; trustees and intermediaries to facilitate targeted networking. The group also benefits from ‘break the ice’ speed networking for attendees who wish to participate.
Members are individuals in their first or second jobs who are aiming to:
- kick-start their personal and business network
- gain their own pool of business referrals
- meet senior wealth management industry figures who would be hard to meet
- gain a peer network to develop ongoing knowledge
#Thekeyaimof the Tomorrow Club is to help develop the careers of its members by enabling them to establish a network of contacts with people of a similar level in other organisations. The result is a pipeline of contacts to gain work; a strong group of peers to ask advice from and a network of support to fast-track careers in the wealth industry. These relationships grow over time giving the Tomorrow Club members a head start in developingreferral networks which also delivers benefit to your organisation. Membership of the group has directly led to referrals and introductions between organisations within the membership.
