Setting the Stage – Embracing digital technology to transform finance

Join us for our exclusive FDE breakfast briefing on the need for enterprises to truly embrace technology in order to successfully transform finance, featuring a keynote presentation from Katie Murray, Group CFO, Royal Bank of Scotland.

We are working in a ever-changing and competitive environment and adapting to stay successful is essential. RBS has come a long way, having achieved one of the biggest corporate turnarounds in history; it is now a smaller, more focused and safer bank. Join this briefing to hear CFO Katie Murray explain what RBS is looking to next in order to continue innovating for the customer under economic and regulatory pressure. In the Finance team, RBS has embraced new technologies and ways of working but it really is all about the right behaviours and culture.

RBS is at a pivotal time in its legacy and is passionately driven by achieving brilliant customer experiences. Hear from Katie about the journey RBS has been on more recently and why it’s important to keep that customer focus whilst building an agile, diverse and fast paced team.

This exclusive, VIP invitation-only breakfast will also enable you to network with like-minded finance professionals who are at various stages of their own transformation journeys and developing their functions to be more cost and time efficient.

The VIP invitation includes:

• Attendance of the event
• Networking opportunities reflecting the event’s exclusivity
• Breakfast & Drinks
