Asset Finance Connect’s Next Generation Workshop, in association with the Leasing Foundation, will be returning to the AFC Summer Conference on 6th June at etc venues, County Hall, London.

Edward Peck, CEO of Asset Finance Connect commented, “The upcoming AFC Next Generation workshop shines a spotlight on the important role young professionals must play in shaping the future of the asset finance sector. It is one way in which AFC can support the Leasing Foundation’s efforts to nurture, empower and retain emerging talent in the industry. During the next-gen session, participants will have the opportunity to connect with their peers in other lending businesses, widening their networks beyond their immediate businesses. We hope it will also help facilitate the exchange of ideas among the next generation of leaders, sparking the innovation necessary to fuel growth and to better serve borrowers.”

Philip White, Chief Executive Officer of the Broker Hub, will be the keynote speaker, presenting to the next gen community at the AFC workshop.

Philip suffered a spinal cord injury following an accident at home in 2019, leaving him with a broken C5 vertebrae and damage to his spinal cord. Philip's resilience and determination amidst adversity have been instrumental in carrying him through profound physical and mental hurdles.

In addition to his role as CEO of the Broker Hub and various non-executive position within financial organisations, Philip is patron of the Wings for Life foundation, a not-for-profit spinal cord research foundation with the mission to find a cure for spinal cord injury.

At the Next Generation Workshop, Philip will develop the theme of managing adversity and developing resilience within the workplace, sharing his personal and professional experiences.

Next gen delegates will then be invited to join roundtables to network and engage in insightful discussion with their peers focusing on issues arising from Philip’s presentation including adversity, resilience, endurance, goal setting, discipline, strategic planning, focus, time management, adaptability, and self motivation. Delegates should be prepared to share their own experiences of adversity both in their personal and professional lives, and how these experiences have helped to shape their career outlook.

Roundtable sessions will also discuss how resilience is important in the workplace and how businesses can encourage resilience.

Industry professionals from the Leasing Foundation community and past 30 under 30 cohorts will act as moderators, providing added insight on the topics.

Nathan Mollett, outgoing chair of the Leasing Foundation said: "We're thrilled to be collaborating with Asset Finance Connect for yet another Next Generation Workshop at the AFC Summer conference. These sessions provide the industry's young talent with a superb platform to collaborate with their peers and discuss ways to positively shape the future of our industry."

Auto and asset finance companies can nominate young professionals from their organisations to attend the conference session to network with their peers, whilst learning about the industry from auto, asset and equipment finance industry leaders.

Tickets will be available to our young professionals for the AFC Summer Conference and exclusive access to the Next Generation Workshop at the special rate of £120 plus VAT.

Suggested criteria for attendees to the Next Generation Workshop:

  • Typically we are looking for people who are not already embedded deep in the asset/auto/equipment finance market;
  • At the early stage of developing a network of people ie beyond their immediate colleagues;
  • Who are focussed on careers and perhaps even trying out different specialisms;
  • Maybe those with specific concerns (eg D&I);
  • Those who are driven by purpose;
  • Bright people with promise who would benefit; and/or
  • Those who are keen to share their experience with the above.

This is by no means a definite list and we would recommend the organisation makes the decision based on who they feel would gain the most from attending - the above is purely for guidance.
