Hear from keynote speaker Dame Susan Rice, a female trailblazer in the international banking industry, as she shares her experience in establishing and implementing high standards of behaviour and competence within the UK banking industry.

Susan will provide insight on how a customer best interest culture can be achieved with a focus on:

  • Professional Standards, not just talk
  • How value derives from values
  • Long-term vs short-term success

In addition to previously serving as the first female CEO of a major UK Bank (Lloyds TSB Scotland), Susan holds a long list of impressive credentials, including Chair of the Chartered Bankers Professional Standards Board, Chair of Scottish Water, Chair of the Scottish Fiscal Commission, and previously a Director of the Bank of England. As a Practitioner member of the Banking Standards Board in the UK, Dame Rice adheres to the BSB’s belief that the best way to increase trust and ethical behaviour in this industry is by focusing on the best interests of the customer, both in the UK and globally.

This event is being run in collaboration with the Australian Institute of Company Directors. This event will surely fill up fast as this is a unique opportunity to hear from our international guest speaker. Make sure to reserve a spot quickly to avoid disappointment!
