We’re delighted to launch a series of KnowNow Training courses for the gambling industry. Furthermore we can also offer you a bespoke training solution to meet your organisations needs.
2020 was a year of uncertainty, change and turmoil for everybody. Our businesses had to learn to adapt quickly. We all had to embrace new ways of working, engaging with customers and colleagues and responding very quickly to regulatory change.
In 2021 it is more important than ever to make sure that your team is up to date and equipped with the knowledge and skills to enable your business to continue to thrive in these times and beyond.
We are delighted to welcome nChain, the global leader in research and development of blockchain technologies, as a sponsor at our 4th annual conference.
Don’t miss their representative, Nick Hill on our panel discussion on Day 1: Throughout the period of lockdown there was a lot of concern about the potential for an increase in problem gambling. However, the Gambling Commission’s annual gambling behaviours study reported a drop in problem gambling rates from 0.6% in 2019 to 0.3% in 2020. Why do we think this was? And what should our takeaways be to keep those stats going in the right direction?
It’s been a while since we’ve been able to hold a live event. Therefore we cannot wait to host the 4th Annual KnowNow conference on 7/8 September. We’ve got a great agenda and will be running the event with a socially distanced audience at a London venue.
Read on for details about some of our speakers. Watch this space for further announcements.
We’re delighted to announce that the UK Gambling Commission will be opening our 4th Annual Conference in September. Welcome to Tim Miller, Executive Director at the Gambling Commission who joins our great line-up of speakers. Tim will be opening day 1, Social Responsibility for Gambling Operators, with a keynote speech.
We are super keen to bring the compliance and player protection community together to discuss the plethora of crucial topics that have arisen over the past 18 months since we ran our last live event in London back in January 2020. It is so important that we continue our crucial work of coming together as an industry to help make gambling safer.
Conference venues were allowed to open on the 17th May and we were gearing up to run the event at the end of June. However the rise of the Delta variant in the UK, travel restrictions and the pushing back of “freedom day” to 19th July were all working against us. We have therefore taken the decision to delay the event until after the summer. The new dates for your diary are 7th September for Social Responsibility for Gambling Operators and 8th September for Keeping Crime Out of Gambling.
We’re counting down the days until our 4th Annual Conference at KnowNow HQ. So time to hand over to our MD Paula Murphy…
Here in the UK at least, we are fortunate that our world is cautiously opening up and getting back to business. I loved seeing LinkedIn posts from our land based colleagues as venues are opening their doors once again.
At KnowNow we’re prepared and good to go with an agenda I’ve been toiling away on for our fourth annual conference. This will now take place at Etc venues Chancery Lane on the 7th and 8th September. It will be our first opportunity to bring the compliance and player protection community back together in a real world environment since we ran our last conference way back in January 2020.
We’re delighted to welcome AgeChecked, the online age and identity verification solutions provider, as a sponsor at our 4th Annual Conference. Don’t miss their CEO, Alastair Graham, present – Responsible gambling and regulatory changes across different jurisdictions – on Day 1.
We’ve got your safety front of mind when planning our conferences. Therefore we will continue to use etc venues who have an 18 point plan in place to ensure that you’re in safe (and fully sanitised) hands when attending our events at their venues.
Up next on the 7/8 September: Social Responsibility for Gambling Operators followed by Keeping Crime out of Gambling.

Recently KnowNow partnered with RightWay Compliance and Seventh Wave Training to bring you an interactive online training course. We delivered this twice to delegates over a five week period.
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.”
Nicole Bernaerts, Regulatory Compliance Officer, L&L Europe Ltd
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 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. Contact us today to discuss your compliance and player protection training requirements.
Book your tickets today for the KnowNow Player Protection Forum. We’ve got a packed agenda for the day. Here’s an introduction to some of the speakers.
We recently put our next digital conference, the Player Protection Forum, to market. Running it this way would not be our first choice but considering the global situation it’s the only way we can currently guarantee delivering the content. Anyone who has held conferences will be aware that digital events still incur costs for us as a business. So to avoid getting into a twitter debate we’ll hand over to our MD Paula Murphy to address some of the misconceptions about what we do and our business…
