Event description

Description

Visit thinkforward.leasingfoundation.org for more details on speakers and the agenda for the day.

This year’s Leasing Foundation Annual Conference is THINK/FORWARD.

It focuses on the changing landscape of asset finance and four connected themes

- understanding customers
- the agile organisation
- changing the culture of asset finance; and
- technology and change


The format for THINK/FORWARD is short talks and panel discussions on focused topics. Experienced and informed panel chairs and speakers will focus on both the big picture and the real detail. Speakers and panellists will provide not only thought-leadership, but practical, actionable examples that you can take back to your business.

Come prepared to engage in vibrant discussion and open debate on challenging ideas about the future of the industry.

OPENING SESSION/THINKING FORWARD ABOUT OUR INDUSTRY

Panel chair: Ian Isaac/Lombard. It's clear to everyone - and especially those entering our industry - that we are in a period of profound change. Organisational structures and culture, technology and ways of thinking are changing, and need to change. The Leasing Foundation, along with other industry bodies, should both serve the industry and promote new thinking to drive change. What you will take away: the way that collaboration really can work, the key challanges, and how industry organisations can help collaborate to promote success.

WHAT DO CUSTOMERS WANT?

Panel chair: Peter Thomas/The Leasing Foundation. Modern asset finance organisations need to understand what customers really want or face being left behind by new, forward-thinking competitors. What you will take away: what really works in understanding and designing the customer experience, with industry-leading examples of successful products and services.

THE AGILE ORGANISATION

Panel chair: Andrew Denton/Alfa plc. Modern organisations have to be agile, fast-moving and unafraid to experiment. What you will take away: real examples of how organisations can become agile and responsive based on examples from across the asset finance industry.

CHANGING THE CULTURE OF ASSET FINANCE

Panel chair: Sharon Butler/Ricoh Europe. The biggest barrier to change is not technology, or outdated processes but culture - a problem faced by leaders every day. What you will take away: insights into how the industry is changing, from those who are the future of the industry and how you can adapt to that change.

TECHNOLOGY AND CHANGE

Panel chair: Gary Amos/Siemens Financial Services. The digital revolution isn't a revolution any more - its business as usual. But the real value, and the real costs, of new technologies have been hard to assess in the asset finance industry. What you will take away: an understanding of the challenges, benefits and costs of new technologies and how the future will unfold.

CLOSING SESSION/CHALLENGES FOR THE INDUSTRY

Join an interactive discussion with Carl D'Ammassa/Aldermore about some of the biggest challenges the asset finance industry faces - education and training, talent pipelines, professionalism, diversity and leadership in asset finance.
