Key note speakers warming up for ISITC Europe conference

Posted on

London, 16th November, 2011 – ISITC Europe, the industry group dedicated to improving the operational efficiency of the global financial industry, today unveiled the specifics that its keynote speakers are set to touch on at its annual conference.

The event will be held on Friday November 18th at The Royal Bank of Scotland’s head office in London. It is set to provide new and existing members with information from, and debate between, some of the industry’s most prominent thought leaders. Two contrasting key note speakers are set to take centre stage at the event.

Dr David Doyle, EU Policy Adviser in financial services and Board member of the Kangaroo Group, is set to cover the impact of ESMA and other EC measures. The other keynote will be provided by Squadron Leader Andrew W. Lamb from the RAF. Squadron leader Lamb will draw on his experience in theatre and assess how it can provide valuable lessons to those working in the city as he discusses leadership in the current regulatory warzone financial services firms find themselves in.

“I am delighted to be speaking at the ISITC Europe event, where I will be sharing my experiences as part of the Chinook Immediate Response Team,”

said Andrew W. Lamb.

“Strong leadership, effective planning and teamwork are essential when rescuing injured soldiers from the battlefield. However, the importance of these qualities extends well beyond the realms of theatre. With all the challenges and changes facing the financial services industry, I hope to provide some fresh and thought-provoking insights.”

Graeme Austin, Chief Executive of ISITC Europe, who will be updating conference attendees on the latest ISITC Europe news as well as host an update from ISITC North America, commenting on the conference agenda said:

“We are all set for a stimulating and invigorating conference. It’s hugely exciting to draw so many thought leaders into one event and I am delighted that ISITC Europe is once again at the centre of the conversation on so many important issues. In today’s volatile and increasingly complex world it’s more important than ever that ISITC Europe gives the industry a voice and allows members to help shape the direction of initiatives that are driving our industry.”

ISITC Europe speaks for the whole industry, including broker/dealers, custodians and investment managers as well as vendors and utilities. Its mission is to develop and promote best market practices to enhance operational efficiency across the transaction lifecycle across multiple asset classes.
