As business leaders seek leading-edge strategies to successfully manage and grow their financial institutions among the economic, environmental and social challenges of the 21st century, the International Finance Corporation and the Sustainable Finance Academy want to invite executives from your financial institution to participate in the Executive Leadership for Sustainable Growth in the Financial Services Industry inaugural event in Washington DC on April 25 to 27, 2007 at the Watergate Hotel.
The Seminar focuses on the opportunities for sustainable growth and, as such, this event is of direct relevance to the strategic management of banks and other financial institutions. This Inaugural Seminar promises to attract key stakeholders from the financial community. Executives in attendance will explore the interplay of risk and opportunity and will develop strategic leadership capabilities to capitalize on sustainable growth opportunities for their institutions.
This seminar presents a valuable opportunity for financial institutions to benchmark their activities in this area and expand and foster strategic opportunities for growth, innovation and competitiveness.
