We are excited to say that Janet Day, Chair of the independent Tikit Product Advisory Board will be our host for the day and she will keep us on track to deliver a jam-packed agenda

We will also be joined by Marcus Weinberger who is a self-taught ethical hacker. He will show us how close many firms could be to a security breach and then we will explore what we can do to protect ourselves from such attacks.

The theme of Tikit InFocus this year will be trust. Along with some of our key partners, we will look into ways in which greater transparency can realise huge benefits in client perception. We will explore that achieving ‘trusted advisor status’ requires time, effort, focus and an ever-evolving integrated suite of technologies.

But it won’t be all work and no play! The morning sessions will be followed by lunch and a chance to catch up with your peers. You will have a chance to benefit from a coaching session at the Indoor Surrey Cricket Centre, mix your own cocktails or make doughnuts with the world’s first doughnut academy, hosted by London’s most on-trend doughnut shop; Doughnut Time.

Our Summer Garden Party will be held on the Corinthian Terrace at the Oval following the afternoon activities, where we invite you to enjoy a 2-course BBQ while drinking summer drinks and playing garden games.

We are excited to announce that legendary cricketer and TV personality, Phil Tufnell will be joining Tikit InFocus. We think it’s only fitting that we have one of England’s most famous cricketers to come along as our celebrity guest after-dinner speaker. As well as taking over 1000 first class wickets for England, Phil is a radio & TV presenter and won series two of I’m a Celebrity.

He’ll be doing a fun Q&A session and you will have your chance to talk to him and grab a picture or an autograph after the BBQ.

This seminar is scheduled to follow the publication of the UK Jurisdiction Taskforce’s legal statement on the status of cryptoassets, distributed ledger technologies (DLT) and smart contracts under English private law.

Delegates will consider the conclusions reached and the optimal approaches for increasing certainty and investor confidence, including legislative possibilities.

The discussion takes place as the pace of innovation is increasing. We expect discussion of the implications of developments such as the launch of the first off-the-shelf connected parametric insurance contract – including the potential of this model for other ‘connected’ products.

Delegates will consider how to maximise the potential benefits as well as manage the risks of the increasing use of algorithms in decision-making across the legal sector.
