This session guides you to key elements for corporate governance in an exponential world, with a special focus on a new role for the supervisory board.
The widespread effects of technological developments have had a great impact upon consumers behavior and their expectations.

To maintain the crucial loyalty, we all need to re-evaluate who we service as customers, and how we do so. This session guides you to take an unapologetic customer perspective, and outlines the fundamentals your business needs in order to create amazing customer experiences and stay relevant in an exponential world.
The finance industry has benefitted from being an early adopter of computers and an end-to-end digitization of markets.

Given the finance industry’s pivotal role for distribution wealth, changes to the finance industry will have impacts far beyond increased competition within the industry. This session draws up scenarios and the beginnings of discussion about what impact the exponential advancing technologies will have on the industry, society- and what being a banker is to become.
