[Panel Discussion] Embrace change, take risks, and disrupt yourself

by MODERATOR: Dr. Ashraf Bany, Director of Innovation Center, Jordan University

We have often discussed the correlation between innovation and digital transformation, and the positive impact on consumer satisfaction, investment in advanced technology, and the positive impact on revenues. But, while technology may enable the disruption required, it is often the application of existing technology in new ways that disrupts an industry. Featuring some of the top minds in banking, this panel discussion explores how financial institutions can prepare for the future of banking and the challenges facing the banking industry and the secret of successful disruption, the importance of deep-dive research, the qualities of a disruptive leader, how to change existing cultures and where to start.
