Actions and Detail Panel
Bitcoin, Blockchain Technology and the Future of Banking
Tue 22 November 2016, 18:00 – 21:00 GMT
Rapidly advancing digital technologies, evolving customer expectations and a changing regulatory landscape are transforming the banking sector and opening the door to new disruptive innovations like Blockchain, Bitcoin and Fintech.
In this post- Brexit environment, the nature and extent of these innovations and their impact on the UK financial services industry remains unclear. On 22 November, we will explore the potential for these digital innovations to transform the financial ecosystem as well as the risks and opportunities that could emerge from changes in the way financial services will be structured, delivered and consumed in the future.
Our first speaker of the evening is Peter Bidewell, CMO at Applied Blockchain. Peter's background is high growth technology startups in Consulting and FinTech and he will be giving us a real life overview of the potential of Blockchain Technology and its unique ability to transform the future of banking.
We will then be joined by Neil Bellamy who is Head of Technology, Media, Telecoms & Services at Royal Bank of Scotland. RBS are responsible for over 20,000+ Tech clients ranging from Tech City start-ups to major global technology, media & telecoms players.
We will finish the evening with a panel debate, questions, drinks and then networking. Please join us for what promises to be a fascinating debate.
