    Panel Discussion: 3 Game-Changing Innovation Models in Financial Services Today
    Pat Patel, Money20/20 | Dr Leda Glyptis, 11:FS | Drew Graham, Fintech Strategy | Megan Caywood, Barclays Recorded: Apr 4 2019 61 mins
    Innovation has quickly become an overused and distorted word. At Money20/20 Europe expect to cut through the hype, explore what measurements we can use to benchmark innovation and get to the heart of sustainable and commercial step change. A key question which has moved back up the C-Level agenda of established; banks, tech companies and payments companies is:

    "How can incumbents deliver meaningful game-changing innovation?"

    There are three options available for incumbents, and at Money20/20 Europe we’ll be developing deeper into each one:

    1. Can organisations transform their cultures to execute true innovation internally within their organisations? (cultural transformation)

    2. Perhaps tech transformation is the way forward, partnering or acquisitions to do so?

    3. Or do they need to achieve business model transformation by building something entirely new outside of the organisation?

    These options are being heavily debated in boardrooms throughout Europe, with a number of high profile banks recently announcing plans to build brand new subsidiaries. Some of the traditional banks, payments and tech companies are pursuing a few or all of the options while others are sitting on the fence. Which is most effective and why? What are the dynamics at play that determine success for different types of companies? Hear from the leading companies in our industry as they share their incisive insight on the successes but also the failures and the lessons learned.

  • Dealing With the Ups and Downs of Life and Business
    Dealing With the Ups and Downs of Life and Business
    Katie Wood Recorded: Mar 27 2019 52 mins
    In this webinar, you will learn 6 stages of the marathon of life, the ups and downs and how they relate to life and building a business.

    Life is a roller coaster and we can't control the things that happen to us, but we are in control of the how we RESPOND. The word "responsibility" means our ability to respond to life.

    "Marathon of life" and keeping ONE foot in front of the other (repeat theme)
    What you BELIEVE SHAPES everything about your LIFE.
    With our business- I believe that it ISN’T OUR circumstances that make us UNHAPPY (we all go through hard things).
    It’s our ATTITUDE in our circumstances that really make us unhappy. Attitude is a LITTLE THING- that makes a BIG difference.

    "You are in charge of your own race"
    MILE 1- Expectations (they lead to disappointments- When CHANGING YOUR CIRCUMSTANCES isn’t possible - Change your PERCEPTION/BELIEF about your circumstances. )
    MILE 5- Embrace your blisters (Shift from MOTIVATION to DEDICATION- an attitude of whatever it takes)
    MILE 10- Let it go. (Get rid of ANYTHING that will HOLD YOU BACK. What you resist, persists.)
    MILE 16- Conquer your heartbreak hill (we all hit a wall- it's not here to stop you, but PUSH you further than you would naturally push yourself- this is where you build strength)
    MILE 20- No me without YOU (surrounding yourself with the right people - they will make you bitter or better, chose wisely)
    MILE 26 - (finish line) - never really a finish line- it's about finding the JOY in the journey

    WHEN YOU CONNECT the dots looking back at the marathon- everything was here to help you grow- same goes for life.

    Katie Wood is a thought leader, entrepreneur, and creator of The Jourse, a 5-week online program that helps women increase their self-awareness and kickstart their journey to a more authentic, meaningful life.
