Thursday 28 November 2019
8.30 am - 10.45 am
Location: The Royal Yacht, Jersey
Jersey Finance has commissioned research economics consultancy Centre for Economics and Business Research (Cebr), to undertake an independent study into the frontiers of productivity in Jersey’s financial services sector. Through desk-based research, a survey of our members, an examination of other jurisdictions, and conversations with industry leaders, five key recommendations on how businesses in Jersey’s financial sector can boost their productivity performance were identified.
This breakfast seminar will provide an update by Nina Skero, Chief Executive, Cebr, on the research findings and highlight the causal factors influencing productivity in our industry.
Members will also hear from Professor Lisa Webley, Head of Birmingham Law School at the University of Birmingham, who will present a case study on Jersey’s legal sector, focussing on lawtech.
A panel session will look at the five recommendations in more detail and what steps industry leaders can take to increase productivity in their workplace.
There will also be an opportunity for Members to put their questions forward in a Q&A session.
