A quick update on the event we co-hosted earlier this year, where we invited Google, Paypal and LoveFilm founder William Reeve, Loccit and Eden Ventures to a panel debate on technology.
Hearing brands of that stature share their industry perspective was too great an opportunity to leave entirely to memory; so we produced a series of videos to share with a wider audience. They include the full panel debate, audience questions and keynote address. We’ve also produced a three-minute film that we hope captures the enthusiasm of our panel and guests. All videos are now ready to view on our YouTube channel.
Given the very positive feedback we’ve received, we’re now planning our next event in July – this time focusing on one specific area of technology where the UK can possibly claim to be a leader: Financial Services.
FinTech is revolutionizing the face of financial services on a global scale. Mobile payments, user experience and digital identity are all identified as important trends for 2012. Add to this some keen economic and regulatory drivers and we have the basis for extreme disruption to one the UK’s most powerful sectors, as well as to the way in which all of us engage with it.
We’ll be keeping to the same format as before: a keynote address, a heavyweight panel, and an hour or so of networking. Last time we were heavily oversubscribed, so if you would like to ensure you receive advance notice of this special invitation-only event please let us know.
