The Productivity Summit: Boosting client productivity

Monday 03 June 2019

Is your firm boosting the productivity of its clients?
UK productivity has not grown in the past decade, resulting in prosperity being 17% below trend. Britain is the only large advanced economy likely to see a decline in productivity growth in 2019 according to the Conference Board, a US non-profit research group. Our sector’s unique reach and ability to boost the productivity of our clients is seen by Government, Bank of England and many others as part of the solution to the productivity puzzle.

Join Advisory Board members and an illustrious group of leaders at the Forum’s second annual Productivity Summit to explore:

  • The vital role of management and leadership in boosting productivity.
  • The close links between employee engagement and productivity.
  • How tracking performance and encouraging best practice are critical in raising firm-level productivity.
  • The messaging and messengers effective at encouraging clients to take action to improve productivity.
  • The most effective time and mode to communicate messages about productivity to clients, and how different recipients affect the impact of a message.
