Being digital in financial services - March 2015

A networking event for financial services about the future of work

The financial services landscape in Australia is changing. The pressure is on to develop and deliver new products and services through digital channels that meet the expectations of customers, staff and partners. But the digital transformation of financial services actually starts on the inside. The future state of innovation in financial services is less about ideas and more about creating a digital business culture. This is a culture that supports new ways of working that will enable digital transformation and is open to fully leveraging what they learn through this change.
