The 15th annual European Leasing Life Conference & Awards took place at the Hyatt Sofia in Barcelona on Thursday 28th November, bringing together a broad cohort of key decision makers across the worlds of asset finance, leasing, banks, technology and law firms.
Top of the discussion agenda at the conference itself was inspired digitisation, asset lifecycles and a service-led approach, following a view that banks and financial institutions across Europe continue to wrestle with the challenge of “re-defining the conventional role and perception” of leasing and finance.
Indeed, the takeaway message was a need to adapt and thrive in a digital age has never been more important for the finance industry.
The day-long event culminated with the Leasing Life Awards, celebrating the “very best in the industry” across 12 unique categories, in which White Oak UK was shortlisted.
