About this Event

Innovating for the Future: Challenges and opportunities for the financial and related professional services industry

At a time of unprecedented complexity and growth, it is particularly crucial that the financial and related professional services respond to new demands and overcome challenges. This requires the industry to adapt and change quickly and successfully, with a heavy emphasis on innovating for the future.

Financial and related professional services are those which support people when they are buying a home, starting a business, saving for the future, preparing for retirement, or helps them to protect against taking unnecessary financial risks. The stakes are high – the most vulnerable in society will be the first to feel the failure if financial and related services don’t keep up pace. In an effort to anticipate and respond to the changing world of work, the Changing Work Centre was established by the Fabian Society and Community in February 2016, with the aim to draw conclusions on what needs to happen to make new workplace technologies an opportunity not a threat for typical workers.

Join Yvette Cooper MP, chair of the commission, in considering progressive ideas for how these industries might best respond to changes such as automation within the modern world of work.

Confirmed speakers include:

Yvette Cooper MP (chair, commission on workers and technology)

Alison McGovern MP (treasury committee)

Miles Celic (TheCityUK)

Torsten Bell (Resolution Foundation)

Ivana Bartoletti (chair, Fabian Society)

This event is free to attend.

Join the Fabians today and help shape the future of the left.
