The Problem

Every year Credit Professionals need to stay on top of legislative changes and developments in the law.

You are at the “coal face” and need to know how to recognise a problem, so that you can fix it or efficiently obtain legal advice to solve it.  At the same time, you face continued internal and external pressure to maintain adequate resources, managing risk while growing or maintaining market share and meeting ever more challenging targets.

With these daily challenges, credit managers need to ensure they are up to date with developments and the strategies they affect or create.
