Retail Banking Innovations 2008 aims to address new frontiers in the industry and the changing concept of retail banking and consumer finance in the Asia Pacific region – with a highly content-driven and provocative agenda. 

A couple of weeks ago Linda Randall, Conference Programme Manager at VRL KnowledgeBank, contacted me to check if I wanted to come and speak at Retail Banking Innovations in Singapore.

Today, I am delighted to announce that I officially joined the excellent speaker line up! I will speak on the second day, during the Channel Innovations Workshop 3 – “Bank 2.0”.
