Welcome

Sponsored by leading asset management groups, Select is back and taking place once again at the Four Seasons Hampshire on 21 and 22 June 2022.

The event will feature both main platform presentations and smaller interactive boardroom sessions with some of the biggest names in asset management. Our sponsoring groups will be presenting on a spectrum of asset classes and we have some great external speakers lined-up for further insightful content.

We very much hope you can join us in June. If you have not received an invite but would like to attend, please drop us a note at select@mipagency.com.

We are of course actively monitoring the situation with regards to Covid-19 and will adapt the event according to relevant government guidelines.

Mandy Hickson has over 30 years experience within aviation. She joined the Royal Air Force in 1994 and flew the Tornado GR4 on the front line, where she operated in hostile environments, including patrolling the ‘No Fly’ zone over Iraq.

Drawing on her experience of calculated risk-taking, decision-making under pressure and the critical role of the human in the system, she transfers vivid lessons from the cockpit to other management and leadership contexts.

She has recently launched her bestselling book, An Officer, Not a Gentleman, her inspirational journey to become a pioneering female fighter pilot.

Robert Shrimsley is the Chief UK Political Commentator of the Financial Times and also its Editorial Director. For the last 15 years he has also written a weekly satirical column focused primarily on British politics and global affairs as well as a more personal column in the FT Magazine.

Over a 30 year career working for the Daily Telegraph and the FT, Robert has been a close observer of Westminster and Whitehall, reporting on the Major and Blair governments before becoming the FT’s news editor. In that role he led the paper’s coverage of the financial crisis before moving to become managing editor of FT.com, overseeing the FT’s switch to becoming a web-first news organisation.

He has worked with organizations such as Unilever, Nestle, Reiss, the Climate Pledge, the Environment Agency, British Retail Consortium, Food and Drink Federation and Climate Action.

Mike was until 2019 Director of Sustainable Business at Marks & Spencer, spearheading its ground-breaking Plan A (because there is no Plan B for the one planet we have) sustainability programme. He co-chaired the Consumer Goods Forum's sustainability work, bringing the world's largest retailers and fast-moving consumer goods brands together to work on issues such as deforestation, plastics and forced labour. He is a Senior Associate at the Cambridge Institute for Sustainability Leadership and a Trustee at Blueprint for Better Business.
