A clear theme from the event was that the whole project has a strong people focus; firstly, the overriding objective is to ensure we come up with a model which delivers the best customer experience; secondly, essential to the success is creating a culture where change is embraced and accepted, which involves both exemplary communication skills, widespread Market engagement and requires our change managers to possess the soft skills to take their colleagues with them on the journey. The event received considerable praise from Practitioner and Corporate Members alike and concluded with the Club's popular networking drinks.
