"FutureBanking brings us together for an opportunity to challenge yourself and challenge your own perceptions. Not only the way things work today but the way with technology if we all work together we can do some profoundly better things to make what we do as banking professionals even more inclusive going forward."
Matt HammersteinCEO, Barclays UK
"I really enjoy attending FutureBanking events. The workshops are a great opportunity to work together problem-solving with people from different companies and parts of the bank. Also, hearing from the speakers and getting their insights."
R. OdameteyClient Integration Relationship Manager, BNP Paribas
"I was inspired by listening to the insight provided by the speakers. It's become ever clearer to me that the current way of thinking in the corporate world is outdated and we have to think completely differently to move forward in an increasingly technology-dominated workplace. I'm looking forward to the next event to further expand my knowledge and thinking."
N. ShahSenior Manager - CFO Advisory, EY
"Thoroughly enjoy FutureBanking events! Rich discussions and excellent networking opportunities"
S. AcquayeProduct Management Specialist
"What came out of the event for me was the diversity of thought: similar yet different approaches to the same problem. I'd be delighted to delve deeper."
P. MeehanFounder, Cybersecurity Workforce Alliance
"It has been great to see FutureBanking as a platform for diversity in Fintech. Aside from passion and enthusiasm, its core strengths lie in building teams creating stakeholder engagement. Along with the [sponsorship from] Barclays, and [partnership with] wider financial and entrepreneur ecosystem, to create social impact and lead innovation through the Conferences and Exhibitions held by FutureBanking."
