Making Banks Work for Us: EU Banking Reform. Hosted by Jean Lambert MEP

  • November 4, 2013 · 6:30 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

London European Club invites you to another talk organised by Jean Lambert, London's Green Member of the European Parliament. She invites you to a discussion with Philippe Lamberts, Banking Spokesperson for the Greens in the European Parliament ('The man who capped the Banks' FT 01/03/2013) and Douglas Flint, Group Chairman of HSBC Holdings to discuss reform of the banking and financial system.

The economic crisis has exposed the banking sector as under-regulated and badly failing to meet the real needs of society, economic or social. Join Jean Lambert for a topical discussion about how we can make the banks and the financial system work for us all.

    hmm, this is confusing, seems like there are two parallel registration processes independent of each other. registered for a place early with this meetup and got a place but did not realise i had to register as well via the eventbrite website - i thought the organiser would do this for all registered; so now it seems that all is booked up on eventbrite and have to cancel my plans for this

      I should say a big thank you for organising. You don't need to say sorry it was those who didn't read it - like me - fault!
      If the need to book was higher up those of us who (say) use the app and make a quick decision it would help - but as I now know it is more for others who may make the mistake in the future.
      Thanks again for organising

      You're welcome David and sorry didn't get to speak to you in person, what with one speaker being extremely high-profile in his sector and one delayed on the eurostar, I seemed to spend most of the evening running about handling issues related to them (to be expected really). Some good discussions had though I think. Hopefully get to speak to you next time

    Great event, the discussion was helpful and informative. The panel was trying to identify solutions, not just throw up political smokescreens. Thanks to Pauline for organising!

      Thanks Hans, it was very nice to meet you. Both speakers have said they'd like to do another one, so if it happens I'll keep you and the LEC posted.

      It is to the side of the church - St Ethelburga's

      It's that little gate right next to the big building site. It looks like a church entrance...

    I signed up a while ago on this list, but I was too late for the Eventbrite sign-up. Any ideas about how to get in anyway?

      Hi David, I'm afraid the event is fully booked. As it is a public event I could only allocate 20 places to the LEC and those places are full plus the rest of the places for other members of the public are also full. Your name is on the LEC waitlist though so if LEC members cancel their place you will move up the list.

      Sorry David, I misunderstood your concern initially so my above response is not quite right. Unfortunately the event is truly and fully booked up, I had assumed that all who signed up via LEC had also signed up on eventbrite as per the event invitation. At the moment the best I can do is put your name on the overall reserve list, rather than just the LEC reserve list and if other members of the public drop out you may get a place. Hope that's helpful. Basically if a space comes up I will mail you and if you don't hear from form me, I'm afraid that means no spaces came available. All the best

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
