​WIBF and London Stock Exchange Group are excited to welcome Arlene McDermott as the next guest in the Women in Banking & Finance Personal Excellence mini-series.

This series features Senior Leaders from the financial services industry (and beyond), who are passionate about diversity and inclusion, share with us the lessons they have learnt throughout their careers. This is an opportunity for our members and guests to hear Senior Leaders discussing what challenges they have overcome, what advice they have been given and what they would do differently if they had their time again. Each 45 minute session includes time for interactive audience Q&A.
