CIT UK is to sponsor the Leasing Foundation Future Leaders meeting in Paris on 2 October 2014.
The Future Leaders meeting, held ahead of the main Leasing Foundation Annual Conference which takes place on Friday 3 October, will be held at the SGEF corporate headquarters, Tours Société Générale, in La Défense, Paris, the conference venue.
The meeting, which will run for a half day, will include Marie-Christine Ducholet in the Crucible, a workshop on key industry topics including innovation with Q&A sessions with Foundation Fellows and Governors. The meeting will also provide an opportunity for the next cohort of leaders and their sponsors to meet the existing Future Leaders who include Ryan Brodley (CHP Consulting), Carl Daufer (Bibby Leasing), David Darmoulin (ING), Carolyn Harding (Lombard), Christian Roelofs (Grant Thornton), Martin Ward (Shoosmiths), Chris Watts (CAT Financial) and Rachael Woods (CIT).
Peter Thomas, Foundation COO, says: “We are delighted that CIT is able to support the Future Leaders programme. CIT recognises, as we do, that the industry needs to broaden, deepen, and accelerate leadership development. In a world where knowledge doubles each year, where skills have short half-life and where globalisation and disruptive technological change is accelerating, there can be no more urgent challenge. We’re glad that CIT is able to help the Leasing Foundation step up to the challenge at an industry level.”
Rich Green, President of CIT International Finance says: “We are pleased to be part of this event and to support the foundation and their efforts to bring industry leaders together to network and discuss the important issues they are facing today. I look forward to meeting these leaders and hearing their views on the industry.”
