It is with pleasure that we introduce Mr. John Brehcist, who has thirty years’ experience in the Commercial Finance Industry. He is well known as a conference speaker and writer. His consultancy Roundwindow specialises in Strategic Management, helping businesses develop their strategy, structure, process and people. The business currently has clients in UK, mainland Europe, Turkey, Russia and South Africa. Retained as a Consultant to the International Factors Group, he also acts as the Coordinator of the EU Federation for the Factoring and Commercial Finance Industry. He is also a non-executive director of two Commercial Finance companies.

Previously the Head of Strategy and Research for Lloyds TSB Commercial Finance, he also has senior level industry operational experience. Mr. Brehcist has an MA in Chemistry from Oxford University, UK and an MBA from Warwick Business School, UK.

During the ITFA Conference, Mr. Brehcist will discuss the subject of fraud in receivables, financing and factoring, illustrating with real cases and experience. As John says: “Receivables financing is a real win:win solution offering the user with an effective source of working capital and the financier with high return on capital. But fraud can have a devastating effect on the financial performance and operating efficiency of the funder. Whether the fraud is domestic, cross border, internal or external the damage can be critical. We’ll talk about how and why fraud happens and what you can do to protect, identify and minimise the effects.”

We look forward to this presentation and to welcoming Mr. Brehcist in Dubai.
