Come and join our credit forums to enhance your professional development
The Forums run by Forums International are widely recognised in the industry as great value and benefit driven. Our members attain a great deal of professional development by attending. Our Forums cover a wide range of different sectors within the credit industry, so what makes them so different? Come and join our credit forums and find out why.
Why are our Forums different?
They are learning experiences where the agenda items are dictated by the members. They are NOT lecture based but interactive workshop/discussion based. The sessions are on a 50:50 basis. 50% is led by a subject matter expert the other 50% is where the attendees can share their experiences.
Our forums provide opportunities for credit and finance professionals to meet and discuss key trading issues in their industry sectors. Also, to share experiences and challenges and most importantly, discuss innovation and how they have secured success.
Our Credibility and Reputation
Our Forums are run by credit industry leaders with a vast knowledge and experience base. Forums International’s MD Laurie Beagle is a leading industry authority. Here’s a few words from Laurie:
“My career has spanned credit & collections management, business information, consultancy, training and credit forums which are run in the UK and Europe for various industries. Our original forum was started in January 1991. I am also an international speaker and regularly quoted in the trade press and online.
A member of the Chartered Institute of Credit Management since 1983 and a Fellow since 1990. I was elected to the Advisory Council in 2010 and the Executive Board in 2012. I became Chair in 2016. I am also an Associate of Association of Fraud Examiners.
My published mission is to provide business professionals with a reliable source of information and also to provide knowledge networks that support the forums.
