The AM Financial Management Conference is designed to help Finance Directors, Financial Controllers and other senior operational executives increase their understanding of the industry and fine-tune their strategies for success.
Delegates will hear presentations on key changes coming through in the economy and the motor retail environment that will affect their business. Brendan Devine, the MD of GE Money’s motor finance division, will focus on the outlook for dealer profitability as the next deadline for Block Exemption draws nearer and the cost of holding a franchise continues to grow.
Alan Symonds, Head of Strategy & Development at Lloyds TSB, will highlight some key trends in the economy and consumer spending, and look at how these are affecting the car market. He will also give some short and medium-term forecasts for UK new car sales.
Sponsored by Grant Thornton, the conference takes place at Coventry City FC’s new Ricoh Arena, on Tuesday November 14, and is chaired by Vivien Creegor, a well-respected business journalist and the anchor on Sky TV’s World Sky News programme.
