Description

A Practical Workshop for Legal Advisors

led by Disruptive Innovation Expert, Marc Dowd

The Financial services sector is going through a period of intense disruption. The FCA recently announced: ‘We’re on the cusp of real change in financial services’. Regulators are actively pushing banks and other financial institutions towards technologies that will open up new business models for some but no doubt spells disaster and ruin for others.

Join us to learn and interact with Marc Dowd, former lead advisor on business technology at Forester Research who has advised Clifford Chance, Liklaters, Visa, Barclays, DHL & Ikea to name a few.


Who this workshop is for:

Mid to Senior Level Executives/Partners in Legal Firms advising clients in the Financial Services Sector

What the workshop covers:

This workshop will give you an independent view of:

  • The technologies that impact your Financial Services clients
  • What they are be concerned about today and need to be thinking about tomorrow
  • Which technologies are over hyped and over the horizon
  • The regulations that are coming and how that will change their business models.

What you will come away with:

By the end of this session you will

  • have a deeper understanding of disruption and improved value to your clients
  • be in a position to form an opinion of how you can best help them and what new areas of business may appear
  • become familiar with the implications of the new technologies and the regulations affecting your clients
  • have enhanced your ability to advise your clients on what new areas of business that may appear and how to navigate the disruption ahead.

This is an opportunity to test and extend your understanding of PSD2, APIs and other arcane but important factors that could mean life or death to your clients.


EARLYBIRD PRICING UNTIL 31/05/2017



More about Marc Dowd

Over a ten year period, Marc served as a technology & business advisor to large firms including Linklaters, and Clifford Chance. He has deep cross-industry knowledge having also advised companies including, Visa, Pepsico, Barclays, Volvo, Rio Tinto, Balfour Beatty, Telefonica and many more.

Having recognised the huge dearth of practical and ‘how to’ knowledge about disruption that exists in general, Marc decided to leave his corporate position and set about the mission of empowering others to understand the simplicity of disruption and to equip them with the tools to execute.

Marc has an allergy to fast talkers (and writers) who sell unfounded buzz words and empty promises. Being a thorough operator, Marc lead a personally funded two year proprietary research project studying over 1,000 businesses and businesses models. The result was his collection of 89 ‘Vectors’ of disruption; essentially the factors (not just technologies) which have given rise to just about every business model disruption known to date. He then set about applying them in a very hands-on way with several businesses large and small with outstanding results.

Throughout this process he recognised the burning need for a trusted Ecosystem where disruptive experts & thinkers, solution providers, researchers, startups and investors could collaborate to 1) understand the rapidly changing world and 2) harness this change to create the future. From this seed he created PathFinder4 www.pathfinder4.com The Ecosystem for Disruptive Innovation which is where he now spends most of his time
