Mindset Key for Digital Change – 13 November 2019
Sheffield & District Branch members and guests were treated to a highly informative, and at times inspiring, session at the new Hi-tech Advanced Manufacturing Park in Rotherham. After an opportunity for networking, introductions and refreshments the presentations began.
Brian Morgan, Business Growth and Partner Director at Rimilia, kicked things off with invaluable insights into RPA, AI and the challenges facing most organizations in a time of advanced technological change. In a world where tech has never been so advanced, soft skills and leadership have never been so important. He was able to demonstrate how solutions can bring about significant transformations in organisations and subsequently be able to effectively manage one of their largest assets in the business, debtors, which when managed well drives improved working capital and reduced risk.
Brian is an experienced Credit Manager with over 20 years managing credit departments which includes debt management, risk management, cash allocation and the full order to cash process.
Following this Daniel Cherry, Business Manager with Hays Sheffield, delivered a sneak peek into the findings from the new Hays UK Salary Survey Guide 2020 informing attendees on current market trends on how the socio-economic and political climate is affecting the world of credit management and the wider market.
Many thanks to Brian Morgan, Hays for its sponsorship and to all attending members and guests for making the evening a great success.
