DATE Thursday 1 November 2018
VENUE The Nottingham Belfry Hotel, NG8 6PY
LEADERSHIP know the way
TONE go the way
CULTURE show the way
Since the Financial Conduct Authority took over regulation of the credit arena in 2014, they have worked to ensure the fair treatment of consumers, from an industry offering responsible credit. The final part of their jigsaw is the introduction of the Senior Managers & Certification Regimes. We know that in 2019, they will focus heavily on leadership, tone and culture.
2018 however, has so far proved to be a year of unprecedented market disruption, so much so that we find ourselves asking:
- is disruption the new norm?
- is disruption a good thing for business and consumers?
- should we be concerned, or embrace change?
- what is the key to disruptive innovation?
- are things likely to calm down in the near future?
- what have we learnt about general disruption, and how can we take our new understanding forward, to meet SM&CR head on as tomorrow’s leaders?
Throughout the year, our political voice has been raised, to shape and promote access to credit for the nation, and stand against excessive controls which will impact negatively on consumers, lenders and potentially the UK economy.
Our November conference will reflect on a turbulent year, and seek to answer questions raised. We will provide expert market analysis and advice, alongside a full review of the industry. See you there!
