Fin-Tech for non-IT professionals
To ensure we meet your expectations and maximise your return on training investment, we favour a classroom/workshop style set
How will you benefit?
From start-ups all around the world, entrepreneurs are applying their creativity and technical ingenuity all along the financial services value chain. This wave of innovation promises a FinTech revolution that will change financial services forever. For consumers and business alike there is the promise of vastly improved financial services.
Consumers will get more choices and keener pricing. Small and medium sized businesses will gain access to new forms and lines of credit. Banks productivity will increase, transaction costs will come down, operational resilience will be better. All this will lead to a more resilient financial system with greater diversity, redundancy and depth. Most importantly financial services will become more inclusive, while people will become better connected, more informed and increasingly empowered.
If you want to keep up-to-date in the fast changing FinTech world you need to understand what it is all about. And if you are a non-IT professional you need this information presented in clear non-technical terms.
This two day unique training course offers a comprehensive introduction to FinTech for Non-IT Professionals, what FinTech is all about and how it is changing financial, banking and commercial systems and the world. During the course we will explore FinTech components in terms of a wide range of issues.
