Connected News speaker Gareth Bailey Director and Co-Founder at DebtStream said “I am looking forward to speaking at the event to highlight how digital engagement within collections can deliver better experiences for customers.  I believe this could be a great forum to discuss how we can use digital technology to help people in the wake of the recent pandemic.”

In addition to the monthly round-up Credit Connect will also be launching it’s first digital multi-session event titled the Online Collections Technology Think Tank’

The Think Tank will take place on Thursday 24th September, commencing at 10 am. The three-hour event will cover four discussion topical debates reviewing the technology opportunities and strategies within collections, with attendees given the option to sign up for individual sessions or attend the whole event.

Both events are FREE to attend, although the Online Collections Technology Think Tank will have a controlled audience sign-up mechanism with attendance confirmation qualified during registration with a limited amount of supplier passes available.

The event will supplement the Collections Technology Think Tank which is scheduled to take place in Leeds on Wednesday 21st October although will only take place if Government advice makes it possible.

Colin White Founder of Credit Connect Media said “I am really pleased to announce the launch of these new digital events, having reviewed the numerous industry webinars that are currently in place and I always felt that we could create some digital events which I hope will provide a point of difference to what is currently available.”

“We hope to make these events part of an ongoing series focused on niche subjects and aim to create an engaging environment by using industry polls and inviting live questions from the audience. These events will very much be discussion-based rather than powerpoint presentation format so we hope that collections professionals will find the discussions valuable.”

The Online Collections Technology Think Tank is supported CRS and Webio.

Sponsor of the Think Tank, CRS MD Tim Anson said “We’re really happy to be sponsoring the Online Collections Technology Think Tank. Technology is an integral feature of CRS, ensuring we remain as market leaders within our industry. We’re constantly innovating in order to deliver better outcomes for customers and clients, therefore I look forward to sharing our experiences and taking part in this fantastic event.”

Fellow sponsor Mark Oppermann, Head of Sales and Marketing, Webio said “We are delighted to be associated with the inaugural Credit Connect Think Tank..”
