The forums act as a Credit Management Support conduit across many business sectors. Credit & Finance Professional’s meet on a regular basis to discuss the challenges and opportunities within their industries. Our team has over twenty years of experience of developing forums and currently have ten which we are expanding in the near future. We have established an enviable reputation throughout the Credit Profession and the industry sectors we cover.
The forums are communities (not just occasional meetings) where the members develop networks together and offer Credit Management Support with an ongoing exchange of information and experiences. In order to achieve maximum benefit, all members accept and acknowledge that full participation is required in order to further the aims and objectives of the Forum. Furthermore, by attending a meeting they expressly acknowledge this requirement and in particular will abide by the protocols, practices and best practice. Governing data exchange or any other information that comes into their possession as a result of their participation in the forums.
The objectives and benefits of the forums are:
- To deliver a community for credit & finance professionals
- Develop and enhance best and new practice
- Share experiences and problems with a view to finding effective solutions
- Enhance risk management within the member companies
- Discuss industry and credit related matters and challenges
- Members build personal networks with their peers
- Improve skill levels
- Share information in a secure environment
- Provide members with a communication channel for Credit Management Support
