2020 and 2021 have provided many decades’ worth of historical events in just 18 months. 

These challenges have tested our individual nations, our economies, our people, our spirits, and our leadership. 

Alea Global’s series of events looks at how we as business leaders – bonded through our great intentions and our valuable experience – can work together to learn the lessons of this trying period. 

By talking about global and national issues in a free, informal and constructive way, we will explore the interests and ambitions of family offices and the expertise of participating organisations. Through this event we aim to gather more than40 family offices from theUK and Europe, with our usual highly rewarding 70:30 split of family offices to service providers.
