Natalie Ceeney CBE, Chair of Access to Cash Review, joins us to discuss whether Britain will become a cashless society.

Cash use is declining faster in the UK than in most countries globally. Even before the coronavirus pandemic, cash represented fewer than 1 in 4 transactions. Covid has seriously accelerated this shift, with ‘no cash’ becoming a common sign in retailers’ windows. However, millions of people depend on cash, and digital solutions don’t yet work for everyone.

Natalie, who authored the ‘Access to Cash Review’ in 2019, will outline the key trends, benefits and challenges with our march towards an increasingly cashless society. She will also share her insight as to the likely direction of travel from government, regulators and banks, as well as how the public are likely to respond.

Registration for this webinar will close 2 hours prior to the start time. You will receive the webinar link 2 hours before the meeting. Late registrations will not be accepted.

This webinar is available for on-demand viewing. The webinar recording will be available for registered delegates up to 30 days after the live webinar broadcast via Zoom. The link will be sent 24 hours after the webinar takes place.
