Glasgow is Scotland’s largest city and the UK’s 3rd largest financial centre, home to some of the biggest names in global business and finance, with an impressive range of sector specialisms including banking, asset management, investment operations, general insurance, shared services, fintech and legal services.
Glasgow WiBF launched in 2009, and has been keeping pace with these exciting developments, steadily growing in membership. With members from Tesco Bank, Barclays, Baillie Gifford, Morgan Stanley as well as many other investment banks, retail banks, insurers, and other reputable financial institutions, our events bring a diverse group of people together in a relaxed and informal setting. From interactive workshops to wine tastings, guest speaker presentations to more intimate networking events tailored specifically to our Scottish network, our members have a plethora of options to share knowledge, enhance their skills and broaden their professional network.
Following engagement with our Glasgow members, the 2020 events have been customised specifically to meet the needs of the Glasgow network, including:
- An Introduction to Modern Monetary Theory
- Managing Climate Related Financial Risks
- The Digitalisation of Banking
- Is your virtual NETworking, NOTworking?
- Creating your Career Strategy
Victoria Pringle, our recently appointed Chair is leading Glasgow WiBF cites: ‘My priority is to ensure that our Glasgow WiBF members are getting the most out of their membership and we focus on delivering a suite of programmes that meet their professional needs. I’m extremely passionate about growing our Glasgow network, and seeing similar success in the West Coast of Scotland that mirrors that observed in the East.’
