Banking beyond 2020
Background:The future has perhaps never been more frightening. Turbulence, chaos and uncertainty are the order of the day. Economic systems are teetering with politicians blindly focused on winning the next election, rather than building winning nations. Trust in most of the traditional institutions is broken and banks are experiencing unprecedented brutal scrutiny. Meanwhile new technologies and new competitors threaten existing industries. What are the scenarios and key drivers that will shape the business context beyond 2020? How can you better understand the real future out there? How can you choose your corporate and personal future? How can you stay relevant? Neil Jacobsohn, senior partner of FutureWorld International, will explore the world beyond 2020 a perspective of the future stripped bare of the hype.
