Banking Innovation IBM BusinessConnect 2015 Financial ServicesOn Thursday 19th November, IBM is hosting an event focused on banking innovation as part of our IBM BusinessConnect 2015 series of events.

The event will take place in London at the IBM headquarters in South Bank.

Over the last couple of months I’ve been working closely with my IBM colleagues to create a truly unique event on banking innovation aiming to fully maximise the quality of insights shared, the volume of engagement and interactions between the speakers and the audience, and the overall value for everyone joining us and participating.

We created this event primarily for senior banking professionals working in digital, innovation, data and insights and IT.

I invite you to use twitter to find more information about our event (#FSConnect) and IBM BusinessConnect 2015 (#IBMBCUKI).
