BHETA credit forums comprise regular updates on all current credit and risk management issues in the retail sector, available via Zoom and presented by Let’s Talk Credit, Experian and AON Credit Insurance Brokers.  The sessions take place four times per year and are open to credit control and finance professionals from member companies.

The agenda includes current trading climate, specific retail accounts and how they are performing against trading terms; topical issues such as corporate purchases and reinvestment; as well as a general overview of the retail sector.  Attendees are also can also submit their own topics for discussion.

Will notes:  “Prior to Covid-19, these sessions took place face to face and BHETA made a charge to cover the costs of presenter travel and refreshments for all delegates.  The sessions grew in popularity all the time and have always been friendly, collaborative and positive.
