The recent AICDP UK Group meeting at Regatta Offices in Manchester proved very informative with plenty of discussion on a range of topics:

  • Risk Workshop – a look into how evaluating risk has changed over the years
  • International Economics – how does the Credit Manager view the world stage in evaluation risk
  • Interim Management – new opportunities within the Credit profession
  • Generation Z – how to inspire, engage and retain employees

The meeting also benefited from active discussions with Adrian Johnson from Harley Davidson on American trade tariffs and Paul Hughes from RestartBTI talking about the current insolvency risk for Credit Managers and future Brexit points to consider.  Dave Leighton also provided a very interesting and informative piece on Interim Management and the opportunities within the credit industry. The Credit profession moves at a very fast pace and these local area meetings offer members an opportunity to learn as well as network with peers and learn from best practice.

The event attracted Credit professionals at all levels of their careers and from a very diverse range of companies and industry sectors which offered members a real opportunity to build knowledge and business connections.

AICDP would like to extend our thanks to Colin McDougall of Regatta for hosting the event and look forward to our next event on the 6th December 2018.
