Find your own leadership vision in today’s digital economy by getting inspired by disruptive thinkers and founders of London’s unicorn companies

The Asian Banker has designed an amazing five-day UK Digital Finance Leadership Programme for senior managers, board members and chief executives from around the world to interact directly with key players defining the industry today, and to use the interaction to answer some of the most difficult questions facing you today.

Build your own leadership and decision making skills in today’s digital economy

  • How should I map the overriding trend inside my own head that can guide me in my own assessment of the industry as it evolves?
  • How do I translate the digital transformation I see all around me into a sustainable model for my financial institution into the future?
  • How do I ask the hard questions to sieve out what is real and what is aspirational in innovation today.
  • What are the trade-offs? What do I need to give away? In exchange for what?
  • What should I be as a leader of a financial institution in a transformational age? My own vision, my own sense of direction and my own instincts that will enable me to make more correct decisions rather than wrong ones.

Look for parallels in the United Kingdom that can be used in your own country

  • What do I know about parallel developments in one of the world’s most progressive countries that I can map back to developments in my own country?
  • How do I read all the different people I meet in the digital world? The innovators, investors, regulators, technologists I come across and what do I learn from each of them?

Be inspired by disruptive thinkers and founders of London’s most successful players.
The city of London, called by some as “the financial centre of the world”, led by a very progressive regulator, has a diversity of players shaping the industry today.

  • The City hosts some of the most successful financial technology (fintech) innovators worldwide: Payments start-ups, peer-to-peer (P2P) lending marketplaces, online investment service, forex start-ups, as well as digital challenger banks and neo-banks, to name a few.
  • High-street banks are spearheading their own digital journeys by setting up open innovation accelerators, new branch concepts and customer experience labs. With significant support from the UK government through R&D tax breaks and programs designed to foster growth, London provides a suitable platform for the greatest experiments in pushing the financial services industry towards its technology driven future.

In today’s digital world, business success comes from harnessing the power of exponential technologies, the wisdom of crowds, and the constant experimentation with new business models. But at the end of the day, the decisions are yours and yours alone.

These first-hand experiences and insights will help your decision makers to keep abreast of banking innovation. Delegate seats are limited to 30 participants to guarantee the interactive format.
