Presidents Address – June 2019

Presidents Address – June 2019

Depending on how you look at it: we are in the finishing days of our financial year, or half way through our calendar. There have been some interesting developments in our industry these past months – particularly this period of ‘Post-Hayne’. The findings of the Royal Commission have somewhat devalued the services from the Banking and Financial industries, and as the next generation of leaders, it is up to us as young professionals to rebuild trust with our Clients and Stakeholders. There is much to be done in this space, and YIPs is actively engaged in finding out these impacts and what we can do to reengineer the processes and relationships.

Throughout these coming weeks you will see an exciting and unique announcement from YIPs – whilst I can’t share all right now, it is based upon recognising our future potential and supporting growth in our young professional communities across Australia and New Zealand. Available exclusively to YIPs members this demonstrates our sole commitment in providing educational and development opportunities for all of you.

With another 9 events happening throughout May and June there is much to look forward to across Australasia – with a solid mix of educational and networking, you’ll be sure to enjoy everything from Bingo to one of our legendary Trail Blazer events.

All the best,

Katie Stephenson
President, YIPs Australasian Management Committee
