Customer Owned Banking Sector Emerging Leaders

Throughout the customer owned banking sector is a community of vibrant, young, future leaders. Emerging leader events, and the online LinkedIn forum (https://www.linkedin.com/grp/home?gid=6966701), aim to connect young people across the sector, to help them develop, and to access networking opportunities.  

These activities are run by the sector’s Emerging Leader Committee. The Committee is made up of volunteers from COBA member organisations. You can contact the Committee via: This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it
