New Leadership and Skills in Financial Services
Wednesday 13 March
This event is supported by Deloitte
Leadership in an age of disruption is challenging the management paradigms of financial services, yet opening doors for those with the right skills. What are the critical skills to succeed now in financial services and fintech? How can these skills be developed or enhanced at different stages of your career? What can businesses do to support employees as they learn? Or accelerate learning? Let’s speak with some amazing panellists as we explore leadership in an age of digital transformation.
