It is with pleasure that we announce the 4th edition of the Back to Boulder: Enhancing Strategic Relevance in Microfinance (B2B) program with a special track dedicated to digital financial services designed for C-Suite level executives and board members of financial service providers which will be held from December 2-6, 2019 in Washington, D.C., USA.
The field of financial inclusion currently faces a contradiction in many markets: clients remain unbanked while certain market pockets have become oversaturated and highly challenging. Our new Back to Boulder: Enhancing Strategic Relevance in Microfinance program brings together leaders from within and outside of the microfinance community, as well as international experts in leadership and change management, to provide participants with practical tools, cases and experiences in the areas of:
- Risk Governance: Developing strategic responses to risk and crisis in order to protect the resiliency of your institution.
- Enhanced Competitiveness: In these times of increased competition for clients’ wallets that comes from new delivery channels and disruptive innovators, we explore how to attract, keep and deepen relationships with clients.
- Digital Financial Services: What questions do directors need to ask as their teams develop and embark on digital strategies? Guided by innovators and specialists, explore both successful and failed cases while learning how to identify key factors.
Through 32 academic hours, participants learn from over 15 renowned experts from within and outside of the microfinance community. Morning and afternoon plenary sessions provide insights into the complex nature of change leadership and explore how to remain pertinent given current market forces.
