Draft Agenda

Day 1 – Tuesday, 25 August

11:00-12:00 Quiet keynote

One of our mainstage speakers joins for an off-the-record Q&A.

13:50-14:50 The economic update: Growing businesses in the face of geopolitical forces and the threat of global recession

2020’s predictions are varied, ranging between a slight slowdown on one side and a full-blown recession on the other. What would a recession mean for fintech? And how can CEOs mitigate – and take advantage of – the impact?

15:00-15:45 Next-gen regulators and regulations: Aligning your future strategy

Regulatory approval used to be a defensive moat in financial services; no more. A new generation of regulators are championing innovation and experimentation in the industries they supervise. What does that look like in reality? What are the latest updates around digital and virtual bank licenses? What are the most recent regulatory challenges and opportunities that need to be on your radar from within and outside the region? Understand the agenda and outcomes regulators want and how your business can align its strategy.

Day 2 – Wednesday, 26 August

11:10-12:00 Innovate or die: Reshaping the global banking industry

Banks have taken heat from customers and regulators for nearly 10 years, but there is a new generation of banking leaders taking old businesses into a new world (and building fresh ones from scratch). Learn how they are reconfiguring their profit models, customer relationships, legacy systems and partnerships to win today and in the future, as well as how you can partner with them.

13:20-14:20 Building a leadership team fit for the future

We all know high performing teams win. But how to build your senior team with tech poaching talent, startups attracting sky-high valuations and millennials unsure about committing to a career development path? Our expert will guide you through the steps to make sure your team is selected, oriented and resourced to win – and hear from a CEO who’s been through it first-hand on lessons learned.
