Twitter and photo coverage from the Mondato Summit Europe 2014: mobile banking, mobile payments, hacking, social media and the future of mobility.
I was invited to deliver a session on day 2 of the Mondato Summit Europe 2014, ‘The Impact of Social(Media) on Future Mobile Adoption‘.
I also highlighted a number of best practices, services and technologies available now such as the PayPal-owned Venmo‘s social payment community, the newly launched JiFi service by Kotak Bank -a social banking service on twitter, facebook and mobile- or Chirpify‘s social media ‘actiontags’ (hashtags driving conversion within facebook, twitter, instagram…).
I’d like to thank the audience and my fellow speakers for their excellent feedback, it’s much appreciated especially with a brand new presentation and format.
Congratulations to Judah Levine and his Mondato Team for putting together such a rich and diverse speaker line up which produced a number of memorable sessions like the brainy panel discussion about ‘the benefits of education consumers’ and the complexity of pension funds with Christopher Sier who videoed in from the Harvard Business School.
And a special mention to Jo Bertram – Uber UK’s General Manager, and INSEAD and McKinsey alumni, who kicked off day 2 with the Uber story and by sharing their USPs and achievements to date. The way Uber has disrupted a well-established industry thanks to their smart and efficient mobile platform (including a seamless mobile payment integration) and maths algorithms resonates with the innovation and digital leaders in the financial services industry.
Uber’s success is a great testimony to the symbiosis between tech and big data. And the opportunities to leverage their platform are endless.

This week we are reporting live from Level39 at Canary Wharf in London, where we have just wrapped up the first day of our first-ever Mondato Summit Europe. Even more exciting than the beautiful view of London was the caliber of the day’s speakers and panelists, who offered their perspectives on some of the most pressing questions on MFS: security, big data, and how to navigate the uncertainty within the rising industry…

Day 2: Uber, Robots & the Future of Mobility

While the conversations were great in person, they were also very lively online – and we captured this Storify of some of the top tweets of the day…

25 mobile financial services tweets from the Mondato Summit Europe 2014
The volume of conversations on twitter was modest with only 196 #mondatosummit tweets generated by 56 twitter users with a potential reach of about 300,000 twitter followers (aggregated number including duplicates, inactive and ‘fake’ accounts).
Among respectively the most influential and the most active twitter users you will find the likes of the Jumio Team (@jumio), Claire B-Jones (@IamMissJones), Michael Parson (@BitcoinByte), Richard Fogg (@TelcoGeek), the MEF Team (@MEF) and Kevin Burns (@kbefc), Aneet Morar (@antmorar), Duena Blomstrom (@DuenaBlomstrom), Daniel Lowther (@prmonkeyman), the miicard Team (@miicard).
Getting a better grasp of the top digital marketing trends and innovations is of paramount importance to any brands, whatever the sector, including the highly regulated financial services industry.
