  • The Geography of Banking in 2020 Recorded: Nov 27 2014 33 mins
    Ian Goodliffe, Consulting Partner, CACI
    Societal and technological changes are altering the way consumers interact with their bank. This in turn will shape the branch network of the future, both in terms of where branches will be located and their purpose/format. However, the impact of this change is not happening at the same rate across the UK and does vary according to local demographics.
    Ian will demonstrate that the best way to optimise your branch network by 2020 is to make sure you take these local considerations into account: the best national picture is actually the sum of all the local situations.

  • The Seven Secrets of Building Strong Internal Brands Recorded: Feb 6 2014 90 mins
    Lucian Camp, Neil Dawson, Annabel Venner, Piers Pollock
    Organisations large and small can struggle with internal communications.

    In this webinar, experienced brand managers talk about what works and what doesn't in the crucial area of internal brand development.

    In people businesses, which almost all financial services businesses are, brands are built from within. Without strong internal buy-in, the chances of success in the external marketplace are negligible. Yet the fact is that most internal brand-building initiatives achieve little - and many are actually counter-productive, leading to an increase in off-brand behaviour.

    Speakers include:
    Lucian Camp, Principal, Lucian Camp Consulting (Chair)
    Annabel Venner, Global Brand Director, Hiscox
    Neil Dawson, Chief Strategy Officer, Europe, Sapient Nitro
