    Beneficial Ownership, Driving Transparency to Improve Business Performance
    Paul Westcott, Product Director for Compliance & Supply, Dun & Bradstreet Recorded: Dec 6 2018 29 mins
    A recurring theme for Compliance professionals is how to improve business performance by making the process of establishing beneficial owners more cost effective and faster. However, despite best intentions the transparency of this information is still inconsistent throughout the globe.

    In this session we will explore the latest trends in beneficial ownership looking at how different countries are trying to support regulatory drivers. We will also look at how the inconsistency in approaches across the world to this problem is potentially leading to different transparency issues for the compliance community. We will also look at some practical ways of being able to support the organizations you work for to reduce risk but deliver a better customer experience when supporting beneficial ownership capture.

    Paul Westcott is Product Director for Compliance & Supply at Dun & Bradstreet. He is responsible for creating and delivering core capabilities such as Beneficial Ownership and Screening to improve D&B’s customer performance, and reduce the risk challenges in the Compliance and Supplier space. With over 20 years industry experience with roles in both Product, Content and Alliance partnerships he has seen how ‘Big Data’ challenges in the B2B space need to solve real problems.

    Costs and Competition in the non-domestic Energy Sector
    Arjan Geveke (BEIS), hosted by Georgina Penfold (icon) Recorded: Nov 21 2018 49 mins
    Following an announcement by BEIS on what government have done since the publication of the Helm Review, join us to hear from BEIS themselves on current policy thinking around the Cost of Energy.

    What is government doing to tackle energy costs in the non-domestic sector?

    Are we really supporting British business, when rising costs of production impacts our global competitiveness?

    Most of the cost rises are coming from non-commodity charges. Is this an essential spend, delivering critical infrastructure with the costs applied fairly to all users, or are the networks reaping benefits at the expense of the consumer?

    And how can we ensure we get the best price when we go to market?

    Corporate to Bank Integration: Keeping Pace with Today’s Demanding Requirements
    Patricia Hines, Senior Analyst, Corporate Banking, Celent & Brian Leibforth, Regional VP, Financial Services, Opentext Recorded: Nov 15 2018 54 mins
    Corporate to bank channel connectivity is a critical enabler for digital businesses of all sizes and industries. Corporate channels act as the digital backbone and flexible integration layer between banks and corporates — delivering operational improvements, improving visibility, and enabling new services. With new payment formats, standards, industry bodies, and the need of today’s business to track payments in real time, this landscape is becoming increasingly complex and difficult for both banks and corporate IT to keep pace with.


    To cope with the increasingly hybrid world of corporate to bank integration, banks must offer a full range of attended and unattended digital channels, tailored to a corporate’s specific business processes. It is also vital that banks deliver an omnichannel digital experience for business clients; one that meets each client’s unique business and technology requirements.


    Join this session to uncover the latest trends in corporate to bank integration, its challenges, and the benefits of a hybrid approach. Learn how a top multinational bank leveraged a managed services approach to hybrid integration and rapid onboarding, turning a barrier into a competitive advantage.

  • Project Finances Made Easy
    Project Finances Made Easy
    Rick Morris, R2 Consulting and Alf Abuhajleh, CA Technologies Recorded: Sep 25 2018 42 mins
    Finance managers are rarely included in project planning, and if they are involved in the project tracking it is usually in a passive way. At the same time, all stakeholders expect to have the latest project financial situation available on demand and customized for their personal use. And if that weren’t enough, there’s often no integration between project and financial management systems. But it doesn’t have to be this way.

    Join agile project management expert Rick Morris of R2 Consulting for an overview of how financial managers can take charge of project finances and use their expertise to add new value to the organization.
  • Energy Intensive Industries: Levy Exemptions and Brexit Impacts
    Energy Intensive Industries: Levy Exemptions and Brexit Impacts
    Arjan Geveke (BEIS), Chris Dye (NSG Pilkington), Jamie Tabord (Inspired Energy) Recorded: Sep 17 2018 45 mins
    Government recognises that the increase in delivered electricity prices caused through the recovery of environmental levies on industrial energy consumers’ bills threatens to reduce the competitiveness of UK businesses in international markets.

    This particularly impacts our most energy intensive industries.

    To address this, a new exemption scheme from April 2018 provides relief to industries whose global competitiveness is most at risk. Eligible businesses may apply for a partial exemption from the costs of funding the Contracts for Difference and Renewables Obligation. Successful applicants are also, automatically, eligible for relief from Feed-In-Tariff costs.

    But does this go far enough?

    Government has recently consulted on widening the scheme - how do we strike the balance between supporting British industry and avoiding a heavy financial burden on those who are not eligible for the exemptions?

    And how does this tie into policy making for Brexit, British exports and the wider Industrial Strategy?

    Join our webinar to hear directly from Arjan Geveke, the Associate Director of Energy Policy (Productivity Team) at the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy as he outlines government's understanding of what industrial energy consumers need and how the policymakers plan to support these sectors.

    With response from NSG Pilkington - a major glass manufacturer affected by these issues and insight on market trends and consumer activity from Inspired Energy, this promises to be a lively and highly informative discussion.

    Optimizing Leadership Training and Development by Leveraging Learning Science
    Todd Maddox, Ph.D. Recorded: Sep 6 2018 40 mins
    By attending this talk, you can bring back to your organization a better understanding of how psychology and brain science can be leveraged to provide a roadmap for successfully training leaders and managers at all levels. In this era of digital transformation, where organizations rely increasingly on cross-functional and deeply collaborative teams, leadership is becoming more distributed and employees are taking on leadership roles much earlier in their careers. Combine this with some of the recent corporate crises (#metoo, unconscious bias, discrimination) and effective leadership training becomes even more important. The overriding aim of this talk is to examine leadership training and development from a learning science perspective—the marriage of psychology and brain science—and to identify procedures that optimize leadership training.
