With events planned up until January 2021 we want our delegates to know that we have their safety front of mind when planning our conferences. We will continue to use etc.venues who have an 18 point plan to ensure that you’re in safe (and fully sanitised) hands when attending our events at their venues.
Clear your diaries for October 2020 as it’s the 3rd Annual KnowNow Responsible Marketing conference for Gambling Operators. This will be our first ever digital event. Considering recent government announcements we feel this is the best way to continue to deliver our content to you.
This conference has been very successful for the past 2 years and we’ve had excellent feedback from delegates. We’ve got a packed agenda on both days so here’s a look at some of our speakers.
With lockdown restrictions easing we hand over to KnowNow MD Paula to look at the Gambling Commission guidelines introduced throughout and our Compliance and Player Protection training to help navigate your business through them.
Here we are coming into the summer months and slowly starting to emerge from lockdown. Bookies in England are opening their doors, casinos and bingo halls are preparing to do the same. What an absolute rollercoaster ride the last few months have been on so many levels.
Compliance and Player Protection in Times of Crisis: Your questions answered about our online training:
Recently KnowNow partnered with RightWay Compliance and Seventh Wave Training to bring you this interactive online training course. This was a great success so we are running the 5 week training course again starting on the 6th October.
This is more than just a digital training course. We think of it as a training / consultancy hybrid. You’ll get access to our experts over a 5 week period and they build an understanding of your specific needs. We’ll tailor our advise and the content we cover to help you to develop, shape and sense check your strategy. Feedback from the last set of delegates was fantastic:
“I really enjoyed the course and it was nice to have the two different tracks. For me it was really helpful, I learned a lot and it was great that it was interactive. I think that’s the best way to pick up the information.”

There has been a fair few changes and considerations during the International pandemic that mean those working in Compliance and Player Protection might need to bring in new ways of working and be aware of different regulatory guidelines.
This five week online training course is specifically designed to give you all of the knowledge and information you need to implement and maintain best practice in the new normal and beyond.
Online Gambling – Is it on the increase? We were warned that it would early in this current global crisis. So let’s hand over to our MD, Paula, to look at the statistics, discuss new industry regulations and introduce brand new Online Training from KnowNow.
I hope everyone is surviving quarantine as best they can. I for one have very much been feeling the impact of the ups and downs of the coronacoaster but we are all in the same boat. I keep reminding myself that there are so many that are so much worse off than I am. As a single Mum, I miss my friends and wider family and am tasked with juggling homeschooling with running virtual KnowNow and getting some amazing events produced for when we come through this, which I firmly believe we will.
How can your business best navigate out of this current lockdown? On Sunday 10th May the government is likely to be making a statement on plans to start to ease lockdown.
With this is mind we are delighted to be partnering with MH+A, specialists in working with businesses on acutely challenging strategy, commercial and transformation programmes.
Over the coming weeks, together, we aim to provide you with advice and guidance in order to return into a safe and profitable new normal.
It’s no surprise that Aintree was called off this week. Matthew Holley reflects on what could have been and with a Virtual Grand National what could still be…
With recent global events The Cheltenham Festival really does seem like a distant memory. I’m going to be honest here. The festival is one of the highlights of my year. However this year felt strange. Looking back it feels like the last week of normality for me. As I avidly tuned in daily I knew that we were heading for a global crisis. However by watching the racing daily everything seemed normal.
What a crazy time we all find ourselves in. This unprecedented international crisis that leaves many of us on lockdown in our homes has certainly taken its toll on our industry and our businesses.
We have been following the Government advice on the Coronavirus pandemic very closely and as a result the KnowNow events schedule for 2020 will be significantly changed.
