What Makes the 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 are run by credit industry leaders with a vast knowledge and experience base. We have been running some of the Forums for over 20 years, so we really feel that we know what our members want and need from attending our Forums.

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.

It is this industry experience and credibility that sets our credit forums apart from the others.”
