Seven C’s of Effective Business Communication

We tend to focus our training and education on specific credit areas such as bankruptcy, antitrust or how to get paid quicker – hard skills that are easy to observe, quantify and measure. While hard skills are necessary to do our jobs, soft skills have become increasingly more important in today’s workplace. These ‘people skills’ or ‘interpersonal skills’ are typically hard to observe, quantify and measure. Soft skills are needed for everyday life as much as they are needed for work. They have to do with how people relate to each other: communicating, listening, engaging in dialogue, giving feedback, cooperating as a team member, solving problems, contributing in meetings and resolving conflict. The Seven C’s of Effective Communications will provide a blueprint for this important part of business success.

Social Media as a Tool to Identify and Evaluate Credit Risk: The Technology, Best Practices and Legal Considerations for the Credit Team

Many credit teams in the B2B space are considering social media (SM) to improve evaluating credit risk factors, especially with the small and mid-sized companies. The interplay of SM and the trade relationship is the customer’s use of SM in order to increase market presence, and a supplier’s credit team’s use to evaluate and monitor credit risks through sites like LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter, Google and Yelp (along with many others).
The session will consider SM sites that may be used by credit teams at the new account stage to expand credit scoring criteria, and as an early indicator of credit risk with existing accounts. Laws that may impact credit teams and SM include the FACT Act, FCRA, ECOA, FTC Red Flags, and the Sherman Act. The session will also address the credit team’s best practice with SM, including adopting SM in the credit and collection policy.
