Is it the same venue for each one day event?

No. We will work with the AFM member organisations to secure different venues for each occasion. This will allow participants to appreciate, first hand, how various businesses operate and get a better feel of the organisations being described by the hosting CEO.

Will the CEO sit in for the duration of the event?

No. We invite the hosting CEO to share their insights for about 45 minutes which is followed by an open Q&A session with delegates.

Is accommodation included in the price of the programme?

Accommodation is only included for your attendance at the AFM Conference. We do encourage participants to use the same hotel, close to the host organisation. We make a suitable recommendation of a hotel in plenty of time in advance to get the best rate for your booking. We also encourage participants to arrive early enough on the evening prior to the event so that we can go out to dinner.

What materials do you provide?

We supply you with programme notes, folder and any supporting materials that you will need. We will also recommend reading materials that you might want to buy to support your learning.

What if I can't make the whole programme?

We would encourage all participants to attend the whole event as this has the most impact. If you can't, for whatever reason, we will provide you with the notes and supporting materials to give you the chance to catch up.

What's the refund policy?

Refunds will be made in full prior to 30 days of the first event. After that, no refund will be made.
