Tickets are now available for Tomorrow’s Transactions Toronto Unconference 2016 event.
This year’s focus will be a peek at the post-card payments world because at some point in the imaginable future, mobile "tap and pay" and "app and pay" will overtake card payments or, as we prefer, #cardmaggedon or the #cardocalypse, where plastic card products no longer dominate and begin their slide into history.
Come and listen to global FinTech guru Dave Birch, Director of Innovation at Consult Hyperion and a Visiting Professor at the Surrey University Business School moderate a day of discussions on the future of digital transactions.
Dave was named one of the global top 15 favourite sources of business information (Wired magazine) and one of the top ten most influential voices in banking (Financial Brand); was found to be one of the top ten Twitter accounts followed by innovators, along with Bill Gates and Richard Branson (PR Daily); was ranked in the top three most influential people in London’s FinTech community (City A.M.), was voted one of the European “Top 40” people in digital financial services (Financial News), was listed of the world’s top 100 most influential FinTech leaders (Hot Topics) and was rated Europe’s most influential commentator on emerging payments (Total Payments).
He has lectured to MBA level on the impact of new information and communications technologies and contributed to publications ranging from the Parliamentary IT Review to Prospect. He wrote a Guardian column for many years. He is a media commentator on electronic business issues and has appeared on BBC television and radio, Sky and other channels around the world. His most recent book “Identity is the New Money” was published in April 2014 and his new book “Before Babylon, Beyond Bitcoin”, about the future of money, will be published later this year.
Dave will be co-hosting with FinTech industry veteran, Debbie Gamble of NorthCommons, as they discuss the impact of FinTech and the new norm of digital transactions.
We hope you can join Dave, Debbie and other thought leaders for a day of colourful debate and speculation about what will happen when push payments replace pull payments and how the dynamics of the payments industry will change at the Tomorrow’s Transactions Toronto Unconference 2016 - #TTTU2016.
As is the tradition, the Unconference will mix stimulating talks from experts with global perspectives with discussions on innovation in the world of FinTech and digital commerce. It is organized on a participant-driven agenda leveraging the 'unconference' format where the discussion topics are decided on the day. Ticket prices cover the cost of running the event with all additional proceeds going to Sick Kids Hospital.
