| 10.10am ||Plenary 2 - Think Differently about Customers |
Introductions:Emma Alberici, Facilitator
Fair treatment of customers is something any reasonable Chief Executive would expect their organisation to live by. No organisation wants to incur the wrath of its customers and lose potential repeat business, damage its reputation, or attract negative attention of the media or regulators.
Yet the balancing of different stakeholders’ needs is a tricky business, whether they are customers, shareholders, employees, claimants, continuing policyholders, distribution channel or regulators. Social media enables our customers to reach a wide audience quickly, especially if their story is told in a compelling way, or appeals to our sense of outrage.
In this session you will be challenged to “think differently” about how we
- Design our products to minimise the risk of misalignment among stakeholders
- Promote ethical behaviour in our organisations
- Respond to customers who challenge our business via media, old and new.

Plenary 3 - Think Differently about Society
It is said that “the only constant is change”.
This is certainly true for our society and also for society’s expectations of individuals, industries and professions.
So, how do we need to “think differently” in a world that is very different to that of not so long ago?
This session is led by industry leaders and will generate discussion in areas where financial services has potentially lagged behind society. The panel’s participants are particular experts in the areas of socioeconomic and gender diversity and inclusion, although the discussion is expected to range across the full gamut of societal change and the “new normal” for expectations of companies and professions.
