WELCOME

Building societies annual conference

Our intention is to bring you a conference full 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.

We asked CEOs and directors about the challenges facing building societies and mutual finance providers. Watch the video to hear their views.

PROGRAMME

Speakers

Over two-days of conference we will consider what gives building societies a real and sustainable advantage in today's fast moving competitive world.

Our speakers will explore wide-ranging themes encompassing what it means to be a modern mutual; the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead, for UK business, for our economy and for building societies in particular; how modern branch strategies deployed by our co-operative banking counterparts in Massachusetts could be used to enhance the customer experience; and much more.
