Former MP Angela Knight will give her front-line view on the challenges facing the banking industry, the reforms under way and the new regulatory, fiscal and capital framework needed to rebuild the industry and restore consumer confidence.
Her talk â€“ entitled ‘Restoring confidence in the global banking industry’ â€“ has been organised by the Chamber of Commerce and will take place at the Pomme d’Or on Tuesday afternoon.
Ms Knight’s political career began in 1987 as councillor and chief whip for Sheffield City Council. She entered Parliament in 1992 as MP for Erewash and was Economic Secretary to the Treasury between 1995 and 1997, when she lost her seat at the General Election.
