    Women in FinTech: Building a Portfolio Career
    Innovate Finance Recorded: Dec 6 2018 47 mins
    It is increasingly unlikely that people will stay in the same role in the same industry or company for the rest of their lives. With this has come the rise of flexible working and the proliferation of portfolio careers.

    This has been claimed to provide workers with autonomy, provide opportunities for creative output and greater ownership. But what are the realities of building a portfolio career? How does that work for women building a career in FinTech?

    Our panellists all work in FinTech currently but have different career paths and experiences along the way. Join us to hear their perspective and experiences in this webinar discussion.

    Just 29% of UK employees work for firms that operate flexible working policies for all employees according to recent research commissioned by TeleWare.

    This highlights the stark differences in how firms are creating workforces who can work flexibly in an increasingly mobile environment. One thing is certain, tools that enable employees to work wherever and whenever they want to are here to stay, but how firms deploy them could be the difference between success or failure.

    Join us in the latest webinar in our mobility and productivity programme where we will share exclusive insight into mobile and flexible working practices.

    Join our panel of experts to find out:
    •The impact on businesses who fail to deliver changing flexible working expectations
    •The technological advancements that are helping firms operate flexibly
    •The benefits and the pitfalls of a more mobility enabled workforce
    •The barriers to successful adoption and how you can overcome them.

    Farah Saeed, Research Director, Digital Grids, Naren Pasupalati, Research Analyst, Frost & Sullivan Recorded: Nov 15 2018 41 mins
    Many states across the US have taken a proactive approach to address climate change despite federal pushback against clean power. California recently joined the growing list of states and regions that are committing to carbon neutrality and becoming 100% green with the recent passing of SB100. Reaching these goals is an ambitious task on many fronts. Regardless, there is a growing positive sentiment and a sense of urgency to embrace electrification of transportation (EoT) coming from the consumer and electric grid sides.

  • Improving Medical Device Safety & Quality Using Blockchain
    Improving Medical Device Safety & Quality Using Blockchain
    David Houlding, Principal Healthcare Lead - Microsoft and Susan Ramonat, Chief Executive - Spiritus Recorded: Oct 25 2018 64 mins
    Spiritus and the British Blockchain Association investigate the practical application of blockchain using medical devices as a user case.

    Find out how medical device tracking using blockchain offers compelling value to healthcare, in supporting fast recalls, and improving the quality and safety of medical devices.

    Modern healthcare critically depends on medical devices. Whether in the patient in the form of implantables, on the patient in the form of wearables, or around the patient monitoring their environment, medical devices are already pervasive, and rapidly growing.

    Artificial intelligence and machine learning provide powerful new tools for real-time analysis of data from this Internet of Medical Things to empower healthcare professionals with new insights regarding patient health, and opportunities to improve patient care. However, for medical devices and analytics to deliver full benefits, the quality and safety of these devices is paramount.

    Faulty devices can not only lead to suboptimal results, but can directly compromise patient safety. Expediting recalls and tracking the health and maintenance of medical devices not only through the supply chain, but also through multiple lifecycles of use across different organisations, can greatly improve the quality and safety of medical devices and patient care.

    Join us in this webinar to hear how blockchain provides a powerful new tool to track medical devices, expedite recalls, and improve quality.

    Key take-aways:
    •Medical devices in, on, and around patients, and the critical importance of safety and quality
    •Blockchain as a tool to track and trace medical devices to expedite recalls and improve quality
    •Key challenges and solutions for using blockchain to improve medical device quality and safety

    Innovate Finance's Women in FinTech Webinar Series - Funding the Founders
    Innovate Finance Recorded: Oct 16 2018 62 mins
    Even though VC investment into UK FinTech has grown exponentially in recent years, reaching $1.8 billion in 2017, women still only raise a minute percentage of this. A recent study by Boston Consulting Group (BCG) and Mass Challenger, a network of startup accelerators, found that when women applied for investment, they received less funding compared to the average male founder, but made double the revenue.

    Our panel of CEOs in leading FinTech firms and investors will look at how women in FinTech are raising funding. Who are the funders? What are they looking for and what needs to change? Do women need to rely less on traditional modes of finance or are more dynamic options available?

    Artificial Intelligence (AI), big data, machine learning, cyber security – no industry takes up more space in our collective psyches than technology. It is part of the air we breathe and the cornerstone for business transformation and growth. It is also a never-ending exercise in new learnings and unintended consequences.

    In this presentation, we’ll explore:

    - What are some of the most promising areas within technology M&A and why?
    - What are some under-the-radar areas?
    - What’s the best approach to deal sourcing in a seller’s market?

  • New Commercialization and Revenue Strategies for Medical Technology Companies
    New Commercialization and Revenue Strategies for Medical Technology Companies
    Charlie Whelan, Vice President of Consulting, Transformational Health, Frost & Sullivan Recorded: Oct 9 2018 61 mins
    In a market where products are increasingly commoditized and healthcare providers are being rewarded for outcomes, medical technology companies must realign their current and future business models to account for disruptive forces in the industry. Companies that have historically competed based on engineering skill and clinical evidence are finding new sources of innovation and value creation. Many medical device companies still struggle to unlock this value and find effective ways to partner with their healthcare customers. Firms that fail to capture this opportunity will fall further behind competitors who are creating revenue streams built on delivering outcomes supported by data-empowered services.

    Overpromised & Underdelivered: Common Misconceptions About AI for Banking
    Finn AI & FinTech Futures Recorded: Oct 9 2018 58 mins
    Connecting with your customers using conversational AI can be a game-changer for your bank. Customer satisfaction scores will skyrocket, brand loyalty will increase, and people will take control of their money and empower themselves financially like never before.

    So where are all the success stories?

    You’d be surprised how often banks get it wrong. Not because of the technology, but because their expectations are unrealistic and often the reason they fail.

    Join Dan Latimore, Senior VP at Celent and Ben Terrill, VP of Customer Success at Finn AI, on Tuesday October 9th to learn the truth behind conversational AI for banking. These experts will examine the most common misconceptions that could tank your bot deployment. Avoid these pitfalls and write your own AI success story.

    • Slow and steady wins the race – why quick wins aren't long term successes
    • You can’t set it and forget it – understanding that AI isn't self-sufficient
    • Bots are NOT Conversational Assistants - knowing the difference can make all the difference
    • A good relationship needs to be cultivated – how to optimize customer adoption and interaction post- launch
    • Cross-bot integration is hard – when to consolidate multiple deployments

    SWIFT remains a mission critical channel for all financial institutions. But the cost and complexity of operating SWIFT for top-tier banks has increased substantially since the introduction of SWIFT’s CSP programme. As payments and connectivity become increasingly commoditised for all financial institutions, banks are re-thinking how best to maintain secure, reliable and compliant SWIFT operations and back-office applications at the lowest cost.

    To respond to our customers’ needs, equensWorldline has launched a new fully managed service to meet the needs of tier-1 banks that can no longer afford to invest in ageing infrastructure or meet increasingly stringent regulations and market practices.

    Now, for the first time, outsourcing of SWIFT and other financial messaging channels is a realistic and attractive option for tier-1 banks that previously operated their SWIFT infrastructures in-house.

    Commerzbank AG, a top SWIFT user, recognised the benefits and adopted the Next Generation Financial Messaging service from Worldline, an Atos Group Company. The service uses the BOX Messaging Hub from Intercope.

    The webinar will give an overview of the:

    Fundamental changes to SWIFT operations impacting Tier-1 banks
    Changes to the regulatory environment including SWIFT’s CSP programme
    The key financial benefits of using this managed service
    Key benefits of a modern and high performance platform
    Flexible customization to customer needs
    Ease of integration to back-end applications

  • 5 Surprising Ways to Reduce Abandonment During Online Identity Verification
    5 Surprising Ways to Reduce Abandonment During Online Identity Verification
    Jumio and Finovate Recorded: Sep 19 2018 60 mins
    Increasingly, financial services companies and retail banks are going digital -- not necessarily by choice -- but as a result of new competitive threats that include new challenger (digital) banks, upstart fintech companies, and even the likes of Amazon and Google.

    Recent research suggests that retail banks now lose as many as 52% of potential customers at the on-boarding stage, an increase of 35% in the last two years. Much of this abandonment occurs during the identity verification process -- presumably because the enrollment process is too time-consuming, complicated, and taxing.

    In this webinar, you'll discover some clever tips and tricks and best practices from Jumio, the global leader in online identity verification, including:

    The importance of offering multiple channels for ID capture
    The subtle art of messaging & its impact on conversions
    The critical need to reduce the number of screens
    Why you need a "yes" or a "no" verification decision....and not a "maybe"
