We like to involve ourselves in the wider business and credit industry community.
We are proud to be corporate partners of Forums International. They are a leading provider of credit professional forums and focus groups both in the UK and Europe. With over 20 years’ experience of delivering forums and events they have established an enviable reputation throughout the credit profession. Forums International currently operate 10 credit professional forums across and within a variety of industries.
The Forums have enabled us to listen to credit professionals throughout the industry and understand the challenges they face on a daily basis. They have also allowed us to develop best and new practices as well as gather members feedback. This has helped us to greatly improve the quality and benefits we deliver to forum members. The forums also enable us to communicate on a regular basis with our members, corporate partners and associated companies.
Commenting on this, Dan Hancocks, MD at CoCredo said, “We are proud to have a fantastic partnership with Forums International. Their reputation in the industry is outstanding and we enjoy working with likeminded individuals to help the industry progress. Alongside this, our inclusion in the CICM think tank helps us to shape the products and services that the industry needs.”
Managing Director Laurie Beagle has played a significant role in building the credit community across Europe. He is regularly invited to contribute articles to industry publications, particularly on international matters. Laurie is a member of the CICM Advisory Council and in 2016 was elected to the position of Chair of the Executive Board. Commenting on the partnership with CoCredo Laurie said,
“CoCredo have been corporate partners of Forums International for the past two years. Dan Hancocks and his team are a good match for us as we both have the same aims and goals. That is to contribute to building a high quality credit profession that delivers results for their specific industries and companies. The Credit Professional Forum which is supported by CoCredo is our oldest forum having been formed in 1991. Dan and his team contribute to the subjects discussed as well as leading workshops and discussions. We are very pleased to have CoCredo as a partner.”
