Since 2009, this annual highly competitive, fun and value-for-money evening has teams of ten from around the markets competing for the annual Futures for Kids Trophy. Taking place in a relaxed, internet-free (no cheating!) venue in The City, it is a wonderful way to spend an evening with colleagues and customers.
Many teams come back year-after-year including banks, proprietary houses, software vendors, and industry bodies to name but a few. It’s widely regarded as one of the most fun of the FFK events calendar.
Because of the format, company names are recognised throughout the evening with scores tallied at the end of each round. The MC is usually a senior trustee from the FFK Board who ensures all sponsors receive appropriate mentions. For instance, in 2017, ION was mentioned three times throughout the evening. The short mentions by the MC is great advertising and positions the company as part of the futures family, with many senior people in the room.
Many companies take the opportunity to invite customers and colleagues to the evening. The informal aspect of the night means business conversations may be had in a relaxed mood and friendly setting.
