How banking and financial services organisations can increase the value of their customers, build stronger customer relationships and brands and develop greater customer trust.

Strategic alignment

Thursday, 30 September: 2-4pm (BST)

Strategic alignment is the careful arrangement of the various elements of an enterprise – from its business strategy to its organisation – to best support the fulfilment of its long-term purpose. Jonathan Trevor provides a blueprint for how strategic alignment can be effectively developed, implemented and sustained. Drawing upon active research at Oxford's Saïd Business School, Jonathan also provides practical case studies and evidence-based insights to help leaders to improve their alignment and enterprise performance.


Beyond the bank of the future

Tuesday, 5 October: 2-4pm (BST)
