  • Cultivating Your Strategic and Creative Thinking
    Cultivating Your Strategic and Creative Thinking Dr. Ted Marra Recorded: Oct 18 2017 72 mins
    Join our guest, Dr. Ted Marra as he introduces his new strategic leadership course in Global Risk Academy.

    During the webinar we will cover:

    How does a truly strategic organization think? What is strategic thinking versus strategic planning? What are the vital few factors that will determine your organisation’s long-term success or failure and are they on your radar screen?

    Who should attend.

    People with 10 years management experience minimum up to and including C-Level in all disciplines responsible for strategic decisions or large scale operational issues - so they have large budget and many people reporting to them.

    Managers and senior management from all areas of the organisation having responsibility for planning and achievement of key business objectives.

    Why you should attend.


    - Reflect on how you got where you are as an organisation;

    - What factors were critical to your success? What factors were the basis for your success?

    - What held you back – prevented you from being even more successful?
    - What could you have done differently


    Understand what are the most critical factors that will better ensure your organisation is a “winner” in the future (e.g., next 3-5 years).

    Find out which ones you may be missing and what to do about it before it’s too late and you become just an “average or good” organisation when, with a little effort and the right strategic thinking and creativity, you could take the organisation to the next level of performance and move toward “greatness”.

    How to build exceptional stakeholder relationships and why doing this is critical in especially in turbulent times.

  • Connected devices and the rise of invisible payments
    Connected devices and the rise of invisible payments Kevin Gordon, Lead Innovation Architect, Worldpay Recorded: Oct 17 2017 31 mins
    By 2020, five billion people will be online, with 25 billion devices and machines using the Internet. Many devices will share data and services, and the way we engage with them will fundamentally change. In a connected world, consumer expectations of executing transactions on a phone, tablet, VR device – or even a refrigerator – will be higher than ever.

    As time goes on, devices will become smarter and make more and more decisions for us. We’ll be able to create rules as users to tell our devices what we’re comfortable with them paying for automatically. The use cases for rule-based payment are endless!

    As such, the onus of creating frictionless download and shopping experiences while overcoming barriers between devices lies with each business. When it comes to recurring and subscription payments, the technology underpinning these user experiences across devices is critical. Seamless, simple, and secure are the watchwords of an IoT world.

    Don’t wait until 2020 to address consumer pain points and overcome technological barriers to IoT adoption. Tune in to the latest VB Live event and hone in on the fastest, best ways to prepare for the IoT world. After all, it’s already here. Attend this webinar and find out:

    •How companies are already dealing with device connectivity
    •How the challenges posed by IoT are being solved for today
    •Global consumer attitudes around payments made by devices
    •How payments will become ‘invisible’ or ‘translucent’ for users
    •Payment technology that will enable devices to make decisions

  • Image recognition with deep learning
    Image recognition with deep learning Layla Tadjpour, Data Science Consultant, Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering from University of Southern California. Recorded: Oct 11 2017 39 mins
    In this webinar, we will learn about image recognition with deep learning. After a brief overview of what deep learning is, and why it matters, we will learn how to classify dogs from cats. That is, how to train a model to recognize dog images from cat images.

    We use Keras, an easy to use python deep learning library that sits on top of Tensorflow, and “fine-tuning”, a very important skill for any deep learning practitioner, to train a model to classify the images.

    Once we trained our model to classify dogs from cats images with high accuracy, we dig into the details of the trained model and look at its building blocks, i.e., Convolutional Neural Networks (CNN), Fully Connected Block and activation functions to develop an understanding of how the deep learning model works.
