FINSIA is pleased to invite you to an exclusive breakfast partnered with the Public Relations Institute of Australia.

The past 12 months have been a difficult period for Europe’s banking industry. With regulatory uncertainty and litigation related headwinds compounding the already sluggish European capital markets, many of the region’s largest banks found themselves in the firing line over investor concern regarding their existing operations and strategies. 

Deutsche Bank, Germany’s largest bank with over 20 million customers in its home market, has had its fair share of publicity during this time. However, following a successful EUR 8.0 billion capital raise, the confirmation of a new strategy in March and the resolution of the bank’s major litigation matters, the path ahead has been cleared for the bank to once again focus primarily on growth. 

Deutsche Bank's Stuart Haslam and his colleagues in Corporate Communications are on the front line responding to emerging issues, managing conversations with key stakeholders to defend, nurture and re-build the firm’s reputation.

At this special executive breakfast event, Stuart will give an inside look at how Deutsche Bank has started to turn the tide of conversations externally and internally, as it moves on from a period of unprecedented business and reputational challenges.
