"'On Day 1 the trainer already made me think in ways I had not done before. Very beneficial.'"
Audit manager, United Nations, Geneva

Banking is changing and banks need to change to achieve their missions.  Customers expect different services delivered in different ways.  At the same time the regulation that underpins banking is becoming increasingly onerous.  In the light of these changes bank management need to carefully reconsider their strategy taking account of the opportunities and threats that they are being confronted with.

This course looks at both the development of strategy and also strategic risk management, considering the nature of the changing market and seeking to equip delegates with the tools they need to add real value to the strategic discussions within their organisation.

"'Excellent course. I learned a great deal and Dennis did a great job adapting to the on-line delivery method for the course.'"
Auditor, Luxembourg bank
