Andy Lopata

Harnessing the potential of powerful professional relationships - whether for career development, business generation or building professional connections, networking is an increasingly vital tool for business - Andy Lopata is THE networking expert.

Networking is a vital tool in business, from sales generation to career development. Unfortunately, it's still not treated with the same strategic consideration as other business methods, leaving many failing to realise the potential their networks offer.

"One of Europe's Leading Business Networking Strategists" - The Financial Times

"A master of networking" - The Independent
Andy Lopata will be speaking at LifeTalk Live

Nel Wilton

As the widow of a Cornish man who suicided in 2013, Nel Wilton understands only too well that working with a Financial Planner is about much more than just cashflow forecasting.

With very little to live for, Nel needed time and support, clarity and focus. A trip to Borneo may not be the first thing which springs to mind - yet amongst other things, it was that, and working with her Financial Life Planner which kept her going and helped her find the reason for carrying on.

Having raised thousands of pounds for local charities over the past few years, Nel is an inspiration to all, in ensuring that her husband's memory lives on and that people are always 'Thinking of Del'
Nel Wilton

Alan Stevens

In the world of financial advice, reputation matters...

After a fifteen year career as a journalist and Head of New Product Development at Which?, Alan launched and ran Which? Online.  As the largest consumer body in the UK, Alan knows first hand what it means to manage your reputation and how to avoid reputation-killing mistakes.

Now an independent speaker and consultant, Alan can regularly be heard on radio and TV giving expert commentary on how brands and individuals harm their reputation online and in the media.  He's also host of The Media Coach Radio Show - one of the world's longest running podcasts.

Madeleine Black

Glasgow based Madeleine recognised that she was a victim of a violent crime that left her silent for many years, but has now found her voice and intends to use it.  Not just for her, but for so many who can’t find theirs yet. 

Sexual violence is so deeply entrenched in our culture and she hopes that by simply speaking out and writing about it, she can help to combat it by reducing the stigma while promoting a cultural change.  It’s not what happens to us that is important, but what we do with what happens to us and if we choose to, we can get past anything that happens to us in life..  
Philip Calvert

Philip Calvert

Michiel van Vugt

Michiel works with NNEK, an asset manager based in The Netherlands, partnering exclusively with independent financial planners.

Why is it so difficult to think about our future and why do we have to ?  For many people it is difficult to make proper decisions about their future and especially regarding their finances. 
You will experience first hand why decision making is hard. Yet it is vital to choose wisely since we might have a duty to chase our given opportunities. As financial professionals we need to create awareness and help clients become the better version of themselves.
Philip Calvert
