ICMA Future Leaders: Two Nordic bank CEOs’ honest opinions on how to tactically manage your career
Getting into banking is challenging - navigating a career in finance few years down the line is harder still.
This is why, on your behalf, International Capital Markets Association Future Leaders Nordic Steering Committee Representative, Anna Reuterskiöld took the opportunity to ask Eirik Winter, CEO BNP Paribas Group Nordic region, and Elisabeth Beskow, CEO DNB Bank ASA Sweden Branch, the tricky questions you might avoid asking.
Which areas of banking hold the best promise for career progression (and which to steer clear of), which skills will be valued as AI becomes a normal part of our work lives, is the specialist track superior or is a generalist approach a good tactic and, despite increasing talk of work-life balance in many institutions, what level of availability do our bosses expect, honestly? Can one maintain a personal life and mental health whilst pursuing a career in banking, seriously?
All the above and more is crammed into this 30 minute episode. Please enjoy, and if you have any comments or thoughts of other topics you would find helpful to hear about in the future, please feel free to reach out to Elisabeth, Eirik and Anna on LinkedIn or ICMA Future Leaders on firstname.lastname@example.org
