Beyond Digital Transformation: Changing Mindsets in Financial Services

Thursday 24 June 2021

09:30 - 11:00 BST


Exploring possible futures for financial services

In the last two years, every market has been shaken-up by the seismic shifts in consumer behaviour, global economics, and emergent technology. How we live, work, learn, shop, and socialise have all changed. The Covid pandemic has accelerated a transformation that was bound to happen. 

Digital transformation is one of the most popular yet misunderstood terms in business. While new technologies, from AI-driven apps to market-creating platforms, predictive analytics and realtime marketing, are enablers of transformation, it is about much more. It is about business transformation - strategic, innovative, human, personal, and leadership transformation too.

Leaders in financial services are perhaps most in need of a new mindset. Join us for an interactive Headspring event with Peter Fisk, Thought Leader & Author of Business Recorded, and Michael Skapinker, Contributing Editor at the FT. During this session, you will discover how digital leaders in financial services and beyond, can embrace new capabilities, intelligence, and speed to better their decision making and reimagining how organisations can work, finding new revenue streams and new sustainable ways to win.
