The formal launch of the new Republic of Ireland Branch of the Chartered Institute of Credit Management (CICM) will take place at Croke Park on 17th September.
The day will commence with a best practice conference featuring topics such how the CICM will support credit managers in the country, the role of Artificial Intelligence and Robotics, and the intriguingly entitled ‘Art of Persuasion’. It will also include presentations and discussions around debt litigation, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and how to attract and retain the best talent.
Speakers will include Philip King FCICM, Chief Executive of CICM, and senior representatives from Rimilia and Hays. The conference will be followed by the inaugural Annual General Meeting (AGM). The decision was taken by the former Irish Institute of Credit Management in October 2017 to wind down its activities to give credit professionals in Ireland access to the array of quality services offered by the CICM.
Philip King believes CICM is very well placed to support the professional development of members in the Republic: “We are all looking forward to the AGM at Croke Park and working with our Irish colleagues going forward,” he says.
