Hello, This lecture is on digital banking and banking as a platform,
part of the Fintech series. My name is Will Beeson.
I'm Head of Operations and Innovation at CivilisedBank.
I have financial services experience in the U.S,
Continental Europe and the U.K. across traditional finance,
investments and corporate advisory, working predominantly with startups and SMEs.
Prior to joining CivilisedBank,
I worked at a legacy consumer lending company in Italy,
where I was involved in a broad based systems and
personnel overhaul as part of a strategic restructuring.
In that exercise, we effectively converted
a consumer lending company into
a lean automated debt administration platform to support alternative lending.
I'm actively involved in the London Fintech community as a writer,
speaker, mentor and advisor.
In my role at CivilisedBank,
I'm responsible for operational execution and designing
the long-term development strategy for the bank's offering
in a dynamic and rapidly developing banking industry landscape.
And it's that last point, that I think makes me a
relevant lecturer today given the topic at hand.
Banking and financial services,
arguably, banking more than anything,
is going through quite the transformation as a result of regulatory,
legislative, and technological changes.
