Yolanda started her banking career with NatWest where she worked for 5 years, working her way up through retail and corporate banking, initially in a client facing role. Her final position at NatWest was in credit sanctioning at a head office based in London. She then joined the Dutch merchant bank, MeesPierson N.V, (now part of Fortis Bank) as a trade and commodity finance relationship manager in European coverage.
Yolanda holds an honours degree from Durham University in Molecular Biology and Biochemistry, is ACIB qualified and is fluent in Polish.
From banking Yolanda then moved into financial product training where over 6 years she worked for BPP Bank Training and then later DC Gardner Training (part of Euromoney plc). During this time she delivered a broad spectrum of training courses for banks, corporates, accounting and law firms, specialising in retail and corporate banking, debt products, credit analysis skills and trade & commodity finance.
In August 2000 Yolanda was headhunted to join Barclays Capital as a credit trainer, where she broadened her credit focus, also teaching accounting, the bond & syndicated loan markets and corporate finance techniques amongst many subjects. As well as running internal courses her training remit included graduates and MBAs, Board members and clients of the firm.
Yolanda is currently freelancing and training primarily in general banking, debt products and credit analysis. More recently she has completed a 9 month consulting assignment with Barclays Wealth, where she has been involved in both stand up delivery and course design across all segments of the private banking businesses.
