Facilitated by Glory Global Solutions*, there will be a diverse range of speakers from Community Catalysers, Parliament, Retail, and Leading Building Societies. The event will support the engagement of a highly positive and growing number of building societies who are finding ways to innovate and develop their services to maintain a high street banking proposition.

  • Ben Nadel, author of ‘The Modern Mutual’ Whitepaper will be discussing this and asking, ‘what’s your branch strategy?’
  • Michael Heanue, Managing Director of M Worldwide will be discussing what this all means for current/future branch design and options in consideration – also providing a context to the worldwide position. 
  • Andrew Haigh (CEO, Newcastle Building Society) will present and discuss the benefits they have seen of placing Branches and Communities at the heart to deliver member value and how this has been achieved. 
  • Senior Building Society leaders, Chief Executive Officer’s Richard Fearon (Leeds Building Society), and Andrew Haigh (Newcastle Building Society), Annie Cossar, Chief Customer Officer (Market Harborough Building Society) and Lucy Crumplin Chief Operating Officer (The Cambridge Building Society) will be taking part in ‘A Fireside Chat – A Branch Strategy for the Future’.
