According to a PwC report “One of the main reasons many banks world over have resisted embracing a customer-centric model is because of integration challenges.”
The future of most financial institutions depend on the strong connections they forge with customers. The relationship between banks and customers are constantly evolving and they need to adapt and connect in new ways with the customer to remain competitive today and win tomorrow’s customer. Mobile technology and social media are presenting opportunities and challenges to reach out to the customers like never before. While driving customer centric transformation initiatives are important for the bank, it is also extremely critical for the banks to have a strong Run the Bank strategy to drive operational efficiencies and manage cost pressures. Business integration plays a very critical and powerful role in designing and implementing Transform the bank and Run the bank initiatives. Despite the evident dividends banks seem to wrestle with their technology plans and investment decisions.
In this session, we will address a few effective strategies for banks to address the challenges posed with integrating technology and business and how banks can take the leap towards
a)Leveraging the strong multichannel interaction and delivering a seamless customer experience
b)Segmenting consumers dynamically through real-time insights
c)Tailoring real time offers based on real-time customer data
d)Run the bank initiatives with focus on efficiencies and cost savings.
With the right partner and technology expertise, you can deliver seamless banking experience to your customer.

Adverse events typically associated with reputation risk include ethics, safety, security, sustainability, quality, and innovation. Reputational risk can be a matter of corporate trust.

Business continuity encompasses a loosely defined set of planning, preparatory and related activities which are intended to ensure that an organization's critical business functions will either continue to operate despite serious incidents or disasters that might otherwise have interrupted them, or will be recovered to an operational state within a reasonably short period. As such, business continuity includes three key elements: 1. Resilience: critical business functions and the supporting infrastructure are designed and engineered in such a way that they are materially unaffected by most disruptions, for example through the use of redundancy and spare capacity; 2. Recovery: arrangements are made to recover or restore critical and less critical business functions that fail for some reason. 3. Contingency: the organization establishes a generalized capability and readiness to cope effectively with whatever major incidents and disasters occur, including those that were not, and perhaps could not have been, foreseen. Contingency preparations constitute a last-resort response if resilience and recovery arrangements should prove inadequate in practice.

Joe España, Executive Consultant and Coach | Managing Director Performance Equations
Employee Engagement is a topic which is now well understood as being a significant factor in organisational results, not least because the way employees feel about their company and how aligned they are to their organisations vision, values and aspirations has a direct relevance to their performance contribution. Despite the range of strategies and approaches applied, however, the level of employee engagement in the UK has not budged beyond about a third of the workforce who consider themselves fully engaged.
In this webinar we will explore what are the macro conditions that need to exist to help boost employee engagement, and what are the micro drivers that enable employees to feel engaged.
This webinar aims to answer two questions:
•Where does employee engagement really live in an organisation?
•What can managers actually do about it?
Jude Jennison, Director, The Leadership Whisperers
In challenging and rapidly changing business environments, new leadership skills and behaviours are needed to lead through uncertainty and transform business. Leaders need to be agile and influential at all levels within the organisation. The old style of command and control no longer works. Instead, blame, judgment and criticism need to be replaced by responsibility and shared leadership.
Organisations who embrace a collective leadership approach will engage teams, inspire their clients and create lasting change.
Research shows that in the presence of horses, people are more aligned, more authentic and more transparent in their approach. Horses model leading from the collective, where every member of the herd takes responsibility for combined success. Jude will explain how working with horses enables teams to model collective leadership and lead change with confidence and clarity.
Jude is an international speaker, Horse Assisted Educator and author of the book Leadership Beyond Measure. She helps senior leaders develop embodied leadership skills that have a profound impact on clients and teams. Through live events and workshops, she partners with horses who provide non-judgmental feedback, enabling clients to identify their leadership behaviours and transform themselves into courageous and hugely influential, non-verbal communicators.
In a period of change, when teams are joining together – following a merger for example-, how can you start creating the right culture, from the very first time they are meeting? In this presentation Delphine Jones shares an approach she has successfully used with teams. This has enabled teams at all levels to engage in the change, to feel valued and listened to and to create a culture of openness and equal partnership. Creating a new experience and connecting at human and emotional levels are two of the key principles to this approach. These events generate energy and hope in the change from identifying a common purpose. Change starts with great conversations.
Simon Jackson, Executive and Sales Coach, Aecern Coaching
When faced with increased market pressures and the unavoidable need for change, the first port of call for many organisations is to focus on the skills and capabilities of their people. Indeed, corporate training and development is a growing area. Research shows year on year double-digit growth since 2011 in corporate training spend. And whilst capability and skill development is an inevitable part of organisational development and effectiveness, the question however has to be, are we truly getting the returns on the investments being made? Is capability development meeting the needs of the organisation?
In this webinar Simon Jackson will share his experience and insight that has been developed over many years working with leading global brands on transformation initiatives that have focused on leadership development and change programmes. We will explore what is really needed to transform the capability of your people and create high performance.

Sean Kent, Deputy Chief Executive at Freebridge Community Housing
To develop our own leaders we need to develop our own leadership skills. If we don't see ourselves as leaders, as I didn't, then how can we expect others to do so? If we expect others to lead and we aren't prepared to be seen as leaders ourselves, what message does this give?
