Event description


Back for its third year, "The Boring Money Annual Conference" will put consumers firmly in the spotlight and ask how we do a better job of engagement and communication. How should we be talking to customers?

We aim to find the best speakers from both inside and outside of the industry to inform, provoke, teach and hell even delight. We’ve tackled the big topics. Value For Money. Risk. What DO people want to know. What DO they like. There will be CEOs, psychologists, futurologists, Mad Men, journalists and even a few disconcerted consumers!
