WIBF and Cynergy Bank are thrilled to welcome Heather Melville OBE 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.

Heather Melville OBE

Having held a number of senior positions across a range of high profile organisations (RBS/NatWest, IBM, Daiwa Europe Bank and, most recently PwC), Heather has established a purpose values-driven reputation, together with a gentle, focused yet persuasive style that is known for supporting both individuals and businesses to be successful.

Her most recent role as Director of Client Relationship Programmes (a programme specifically designed for C-Suite clients) and Head of People Business Networks, provided the firm with a strong foundation to continue to engage with its 65,000 clients, 22,00 alumni and 22,000 employees through a clear vision and strategy that brings them together to solve critical business problems.

Heather is also very passionate about the progression of both female and BAME talent from the early entrance into the education system, right through to that very first role they may have secured in the corporate workplace.

In 2017 Heather was awarded an OBE for her services to female entrepreneurs, diversity in business and gender equality. In July 2019 she was awarded with an Honorary Doctorate by the University of Portsmouth for her contribution to Diversity in Business.

She is the Chair of CMI Women, Trustee and board member of Enfield Enterprise, Patron of Women In Banking & Finance and in a personal capacity has contributed to ongoing independent reviews for the Labour Government re creating an inclusive culture. In 2020 Heather became a member of the PwC Colour Brave Charity Committee.
