The 7th Annual Culture and Conduct Forum builds on the success of the six previous editions, all of which have been very well attended and highly rated. This event has become the ‘must attend’ event for the UK financial services industry.

This highly regarded summit brings together industry leaders and other experts to discuss the latest developments in culture and conduct and to share best practice. This year’s programme features three overarching themes: the impact of the new normal of hybrid working on firms’ culture, the need to align the DNA of the business with climate change priorities, and the broader shift in societal expectations about the nature of work.

Issues to be addressed include:
• The critical importance of diversity and inclusion to a healthy culture
• Culture in the era of hybrid working: challenges and opportunities
• Climate change and culture: aligning the DNA of the business with the needs of the planet
• Policy & practice for purposeful business – the impact of changing societal expectations and stakeholder capitalism on financial services culture
• Cultural drivers of problems at financial institutions - a review
• Increasing social mobility in financial services
• Well-being, speaking up and mental health - learning the lessons of the pandemic
• A holistic approach to diversity & inclusion: from entry level to the board
• How can technology drive successful cultural change?
• Measuring outcomes of culture or behaviour that drives it: which is preferable?

Who should attend?
Attendance at this highly topical event will be invaluable for the senior management of all FCA regulated firms, including banks, asset managers and insurers. It will also be of particular interest to heads of culture, well-being, HR, strategy, compliance, operations, legal, internal audit, and training and education, as well as members of the advisory community, such as lawyers, consultants and accountants
