Beverly Anderson named as latest keynote speaker for March FinTech Innovation Assembly

02.19.18 – There is less than a month to go until the Springtime edition of Agora Assemblies’ FinTech Innovation Assembly gets underway, with the event’s limited ticket allocation in high demand.

The leading names in FinTech will descend on the Ritz-Carlton, Fort Lauderdale, 19 – 21 March 2018 for three days of carefully curated workshops, inspirational keynotes and plentiful networking opportunities. To find out more about who is attending and to enquire about joining them please contact [email protected].

The latest keynote speaker to be unveiled is Beverly Anderson, Executive Vice President of Cards and Retail Services at Wells Fargo.

Anderson will explain that winning in today’s consumer marketplace means seamlessly connecting with customers and delivering exceptional experiences across every physical, mobile, and digital channel.

With brands like Uber creating new, simple solutions for customer problems (“I need a ride”), the payments industry finds itself facing new sets of challenges and opportunities. Calling upon over 30 years in the industry, Beverly Anderson will share her experiences as a change agent to help leaders shift their mindsets and energize innovation across their businesses.

Anderson joins Bruce Lee, SEVP Operations & Technology, Fannie Mae, who is set to take to the stage at the Gala Dinner on day one of the event.

Bruce will compare today’s IT transformation to the old Irish joke, when a lost traveler asks for directions to receive the answer, “if you want to get there, I wouldn’t start from here.” IT transformations can be a lot like that, having a good sense of the destination, but not always so sure of where we are starting from.

Bruce can call on over 20 years experience in senior technology roles to assert that without this grounding almost all IT journeys usually struggle or fail. Using examples from the New York Stock exchange, HSBC and Fannie Mae, he will examine this challenge that CIOs face and how innovation challenges play into this.

The event promises to be Agora’s best yet, so for more information on how you can attend the first FinTech Innovation Assembly of 2018 at the Ritz-Carlton, Fort Lauderdale, 19 – 21 March 2018 please contact [email protected].
