What JP Nicols Talks About:

Thriving in an Era of Digital Disruption
We can no longer define the competition as just other financial institutions. Digital disruption is coming from a whole new crop of competitors, that are swiftly gaining acceptance and market share. Learn new strategies for addressing today’s unique threats and opportunities.

Tales of a Serial Intrapreneur
We rightly celebrate the struggles of startups and their brave founders; but it can be tough working in a bigger company too, where powerful corporate antibodies seek and destroy new ideas that don’t conform to the conventional culture. It doesn’t have to be that way. Learn how you can fix it.

Innovation has become one of the hottest topics in financial services, but what does it really mean, and how do we get there? Learn how the most innovative companies create new experiences, new products and new revenue streams to stay relevant in a rapidly changing world.
