The prime minister’s business ambassador for fintech Alastair Lukies (pictured above) has been confirmed as the chair of the fintech discussion panel at the Finance Professional Show.
Alastair has been recognised as a technology pioneer by the World Economic Forum and founded a platform connecting branches of government before going on to start Monetise.
He has strong views on the radical changes in the financial services sector and believes that companies must remove their silo mentality in order to get the best out of their employees.
At the FP Show – which takes place at Olympia London on 7th November – Alastair will chair a panel of industry experts in a discussion about fintech.
“Money itself has evolved and [is] how we now live in a world in which technology businesses rule,” said Alastair.
“The financial sector is witnessing a swarm of piranhas rather than one giant shark coming for their market, but it’s not all bad news as the UK is at the forefront of fintech.
“I’m looking forward to chairing what is sure to be a very lively discussion at the Finance Professional Show.”
This announcement follows the news that James Alexander, co-founder and former CEO at Zopa, has been named as the keynote speaker for the event.
Full details and registration for the FP Show are available at financeprofessionalshow.co.uk.
