Inter-American Development Bank President Luis Alberto Moreno and Deputy Chief Executive of the Royal Bank of Scotland Chris Sullivan kicked off the 2014 GBA Summit, sharing their insights on how profitable the Women’s Market can be for banks and why women’s economic inclusion is so important.
“The experience we got out of the Summit was so rewarding — it really helped us draw
the road map and the whole strategy for our Women’s Market program at BLC Bank.”
“It’s one thing to have your development banker show up and say, ‘You should think about this.’ … It’s another thing to have somebody who is very successful and has actually implemented programs … show you how it worked.”
“[The Summit has] a good mix of countries who have gone further [with the Women’s Market] and those who are still starting, so those that are starting have the opportunity to learn from people that have done it before.”
“I cannot recall an event in recent years that has been this productive and high quality.”
“I loved the choice of topics. This was the most educative annual general meeting in many years.”
