It’s been a busy spring season, no shortage of work to do and conferences to attend. June typically spells a wind down in conferences though there are still a couple this month that I am looking forward to attending. Next week I will be attending Digital Banking in Austin together with Mark Schwanhausser and Emmett Higdon. I’ll be moderating a panel discussion titled, The Impact Of Fintech On Digital Banking: Solving For Consumer First Banking. We have lined up a great slate of experienced panelists for a rapid fire conversation about topics ranging from open banking to artificial intelligence

Each of the panelists brings a unique perspective and will share learnings from their own experiences. Alex was a co-founder of Moven prior to joining Chase. Ed from Fidor brings an international perspective. Niti will provide a Canadian/US viewpoint (BMO’s omnichannel initiatives were recently profiled in American Banker).

I still have a few open slots available while in Austin. Drop me a note if you’d like to meet up.
