EP.40 FinTech and the Future of Banking: Top 3 Predictions 2018 ⎜#MakerZone

November 20, 2017

Today's session is a strategic deep-dive from a former future thinker and innovation head at one of the world's largest banks. I explain 3 major trends developing with an outlook towards 2025/2030:
1. Welcome to Zero-Marginal Cost Banking - Under pressure from GAFA and client expectations, Traditional banking product margins continue their exponential pace of downward slump to just above zero-marginal cost commodity services end-game.
2. Independent advisory will become the thing - Open Platforms and digital services fully empower Financial Advisors and Relationship Managers to operate on their own - bundling bespoke client offerings using products and services from any provider - in the best interest of their clients
3. Banking will become FREE - The most popular brands from outside banking (think Tesla, Red Bull) introduce Freemium banking services to better serve clients. They will package current account, debit card, credit card, custody and basic investing in a smart simple way, and still earn money over advertising / other services

EP.35 Getting Promoted (…EXPLAINED)⎜#MakerZone

October 13, 2017

Getting promoted has nothing to do with doing a good job. You have to play strategically - be in the right role, do new things, and position fighters for your cause. Today's Episode is a short user-guide for motivated solid-performing employees who are seeking promotion but don't know quite how to get started. I have been on both sides of this process in the corporate world as a manager for over 20 years and was part of the inside workings of the promotion committees for several major institutions. Today's lessons are taken from those trenches of experience to fill the gaps between reading the HR intranet guidance - and getting your promotion letter next February.
