Political & Economic Turmoil: A Forecast for the Year Ahead


2023 is set to be another tough year for Financial Services in the UK. As costs are cut and budgets tightened, the average Briton is facing the quadruple whammy of rising interest rates, record inflation for a generation, higher energy bills and a cost of living crisis.

With finances under pressure and marketers dealing with further uncertainty, finding the right messaging and tone of voice will be vital.

In this seminar we will take an informed look at the year ahead, charting the trends likely to emerge. How do you communicate effectively with customers in a turbulent time? What will this mean for marketeers as they navigate their way through the year ahead? For marketers willing to look beyond the storm clouds, the next 12 months could offer new and innovative opportunities for success.
