LONDON | 3 & 4 MAY 2017
Building societies annual conference
Our intention is to bring you two days of lively discussion and debate, exploring the challenges of combining traditional building society models with commercial ambitions, and addressing the question of what we want for the future and what gives the building society sector a real and sustainable advantage in this rapidly changing world.
A London conference means a bit of London flavour - dinner at the Museum of London, and a welcome party at an 1820s pub. Plus the usual networking events, a fantastic exhibition of the latest products and services for our sector, and a diverse programme of talks, workshops and discussions.

Our keynote speakers will explore wide-ranging themes encompassing housing, savings and the place of building societies; the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead in a post-referendum UK, for business, for our economy and for building societies in particular; what it means to be a modern mutual; how our co-operative banking counterparts in Massachusetts are enhancing the customer experience through innovative branch strategies; and much more.
Breakout streams during the afternoon segments will enable you to personalise your agenda and join discussions on topics such as digital transformation, the workforce of the future, the opportunities for building societies to support local housing need, organisational resilience, cyber security, the trajectory for future mortgage borrowing into retirement and what this means for building societies looking to serve the UK's ageing population, and how should we support the customer of the future whose only regular interaction with their building society will be via remote channels?
