Attending the event were, spokespersons from NBF, Rehan Ali, Head of Business Banking and Devid Jergeson, Head of Customer Experience and Platform Development. Both reiterated the bank’s focus, on supporting businesses beyond banking needs and helping them navigate the challenging environment. As such, the webinar focused on dealing with business threats during 2021 and beyond while taking key lessons from the pandemic, especially the need for more connectivity while keeping employees safe and healthy. Having transformed business planning and projection, the increasing importance of digitilisation in spurring growth emerged as a key imperative.
