After our busy Asian week with our Innotribe Start-Up Challenge 2012 in Singapore, and the Innotribe event for Corporates in Bangkok, SWIFT and Microsoft are bringing Innotribe to Australia for the first time, with a half-day event built around an energizing mix of new perspectives and provocative thoughts.
Through a series of deep conservations ignited by influential thinkers, participants will be able to learn from each others’ opinions, ideas and perspectives.
Innovation in Australia’s financial industry is a hot topic in 2012, with much of the focus on innovation in the payments system itself. But what of the relationship between banks and their customers?
What about the proliferation of connected, aware mobile devices? What about the rise of trusted social networks and the consumerisation of IT? Are we living in the age of the customer? What does the emergence of a new generation of banks, virtual currencies and digital wallets mean for the future of money? How can we leverage digital identity, your digital footprint and a digital asset grid to empower consumers? How will businesses capture this potential and survive the dramatic business model shifts they will likely experience as this future becomes a reality?
The Age of the Empowered Customer brings together the best and brightest thinkers to ignite those conversations:
- Marcus Barber, Strategic Futurist and Value Systems Specialist
- Andrew Davis, Global Head of e-Channels Strategy and Innovation for GTB, HSBC
- Andrew Rechtman, Director of Product, New Business and Strategy, Paypal Australia
- Stephen Wilson, Digital Identity Innovator and Thought Leader, Lockstep Technologies
- Peter Vanderauwera, Innovation Leader, SWIFT
This event is a small-scale event for 30-50 participants max. Invitations are sent out on a one-on-one basis. If you would be interested to attend, please contact contact James.Bibby@microsoft.com or email@example.com
