THE Bank Directors Association of Nigeria (BDAN) is organising a business forum to discuss key issues facing the Nigerian banking industry.
This year’s forum will hold on Tuesday, November 17, 2015 at the Lagos Oriental Hotel, Victoria Island, Lagos, under the chairmanship Senator Udoma Udo Udoma, while the Central Bank of Nigeria’s Governor, Godwin Emefiele, will deliver the keynote address.
The move is part of efforts to boost stakeholders’ relationship management, as banks gear up for the year-end.
This forum, which is a yearly intellectual event organised by the association is expected to bring together key players and operators in the Nigerian business community, captains of industry, Chief directors of banks and other financial institutions, as well as investment advisers and officials of regulatory institutions, professional associations and consultants in the industry.
The President of BDAN, Olorogun Dr. Sunny Kuku, said this year’s forum, tagged: “Oversight Functions of the Board: Effectively Managing Key Internal and External Relationships” is apt in view of recent challenges faced by many organisations.
It has become apparently clear that for organisations to survive and win in the competitive market in this turbulent period in the national economy, it is imperative for organisations to identify, engage and manage its key internal and external stakeholders.
There is also need to understand the role of the board of directors in promoting effective management of these stakeholders cannot be overemphasised.
