The Agenda
Take Part in North America's Most Interactive, Live, Financial Technology Event!
What Makes Our Agenda So Different?
  • Absolutely no PowerPoint! We’ve banned the traditional presenting tools to ensure our visionary speakers can launch straight into a topic with fast paced, engaging discussion - less corporate line, more informal sharing of original ideas and insight.
  • Integrate into your day rather than fight against it! Run over 3 days to distribute sessions throughout the week, attendees are encouraged to personalise their programme and build an agenda to integrate into their regular working day. Strict timings will be followed for each session - starting and finishing punctually.
  • Your questions, answered. Our session hosts are experts in engaging our audience with each discussion. Learning outcomes for each session are clearly defined. Want to address our speakers directly? Share your question pre-talk or live - each host will engage with the audience throughout the session and not just for 5 minutes at the end!
  • Extra Time! Look out for the Extra Time! open mic sessions - where you're invited to switch cameras and mics on, and step up to the panel to share your thoughts or ask a question!
