At the FIS AGM this week, Philip Brown (FIS President) assured members that their trade association “is in good health, is well managed, in good financial shape, well respected and continues to grow in every meaningful way”. This is in no small part due to the leadership provided by the elected Directors (all volunteers from the membership).
FIS Chief Executive Iain McIlwee gave an overview of FIS activity, zoning in on the themes of competence, compliance, raising standards and supporting businesses.
Iain spoke of the “I”, “we” and “they“ approach that FIS adopts to support change. “I” being helping individual members with guidance and tools, “we” being collaboration, collective action, research, common understanding and setting standards and “they” being about leveraging collective knowledge and data to influence others – to lead change.
