How the Humanities & Humor bring Innovation to Fintech

Humorists are often called modern day philosophers, and the best of social commentators. Musicians play with an infinite combination of notes, all bound by a rules based composition format. What do they have in common? A search for new, fresh, unheard expressions of our experiences. What does that have to do with Fintech? Everything.

Join us for a chat with Natasha Kyprianides from Hellenic Bank on August 11th where we explore how cultivating and exercising creativity in their personal lives has lead to innovation, new perspectives, and a passion for creating a better financial services industry.

    Banks being notoriously slow has become an assumed adage. Considering the pace of technology, consumer needs and regulation change, banks are running out of time to either become beloved brands and retain their relationship with the consumers or simply modify their business models to become efficient and profitable rails for those who will. To accomplish that, deeply meaningful cultural transformation needs to happen and fast.

    Emotional Banking details a series of methods to accomplish this transformation and looks at case studies of those banks that have undergone change.

    This session will feature Duena Blomstrom, the author of "Emotional Banking - Fixing Culture, Leveraging FinTech and Transforming Retail Banks into Brands " in conversation with bankers who have had to design and implement cultural change in their organisations."
