LENDING TECHNOLOGY THINK TANK

 

Finding the right lending technology strategy to increase effectiveness and efficiency.

The inaugural  Lending Technology Think Tank will take place online on Thursday 22nd April 2021 beginning at 9.30am and closing at 2pm.

Credit Connect’s Online Lending Technology Think Tank is a new, innovative and unique event in the lending industry calendar. The event seeks to create an engaging environment with the aim of enabling all participants to learn about forthcoming lending technological innovations.

Lenders and creditors specialists will discuss, debate and dissect regulatory and thematic business challenges whilst discussing the benefits of technological innovation.

The inaugural Think Tank will focus on how lending specialists can improve decisioning and minimise risk using technology. The event will aim to arm attending companies with strategies that can be implemented into their business.

The Think Tank is slightly different from the traditional conference set-up with the event focused upon a series of panel session discussions with no sales pitch case study presentations. The event will also not include economic updates or political debates.

The event will focus upon panel discussions across a number of thematic lending issues with the aim of problem-solving and examining how companies can utilise people and technological innovations effectively.
