Banks, Businesses and Brexit: Issues of trust, priorities and challenges
The aim of this webinar is to identify key issues of trust and priorities for banking professionals in the context of Brexit and wider cultural challenges.
It is primarily based on recent research conducted by Roger & Michelle into Brexit & Business where 236 business leaders were interviewed. It also draws upon the wider experience of the speakers in investigations of cultural issues surrounding the finance sector.
Some aspects of the issues to be discussed will be highly topical and even controversial. For example, we will discuss the extent to which banks are trusted by business customers facing the challenge of Brexit. Participants should be willing therefore to engage in critical reflection regarding business behaviour and ethical responsibility.
The overall intent of the webinar is not to provide definitive solutions, but to raise different perspectives on very challenging issues for the finance sector.
