    Brett King Keynote Topics

    A decade ago, it would have been unimaginable that electronic transactions would make up 90 percent of daily transactions, that Internet banking would surpass branches in revenue, that social media would become a driving force for branding, and that mobile banking would disrupt the traditional dominance of branch banking. Brett King explains:

    • Why customer behavior is so rapidly changing, including the four phases of disruptive change.
    • How branches must evolve
    • Why checks are rapidly disappearing and cash is next
    • Why your mobile phone will replace your wallet in the next 2-3 years
    • How financial institutions must reinvent themselves or become irrelevant.

    Brett King delves into the cutting-edge trends that are reshaping the landscape of financial services and payments. He explores the race for supremacy in the mobile wallet arena on a global scale, the transformative impact of tablet computing, the operationalization of cloud technology, and the explosive growth of social media. He explains:

    • How Social Media has exposed pricing, over-regulation, outdated processes and poor policy
    • How mobile technology is completely changing the context of banking
    • How customer advocacy is killing traditional brand marketing
    • The growth of the ‘de-banked’ consumer who doesn’t need a bank at all
    • Why Banking is no longer a place you go, but something you do.

    In his captivating keynote speech, Brett King delves into the future of the mobile wallet and its implications for traditional bank accounts. With a significant portion of the global population still unbanked, the widespread availability of mobile phones and the growing prevalence of prepaid "value stores" raise the question of whether banks will remain relevant in the future.

    King examines scenarios where salaries are paid directly to mobile phones, iTunes accounts function as prepaid debit cards, and social media platforms like Facebook facilitate money transfers, challenging the traditional role of banks and their ability to compete in the evolving financial landscape.

    In this thought-provoking session tailored for marketers and digital channel experts, Brett King delves into the transformative impact of social media, mobile marketing, daily deals, geo-location, advocacy, gamification, and behavioral psychology on the rules of engagement for financial service brands. He discusses how this shift necessitates redefining marketing strategies, establishing new metrics, developing personalized propositions, and fostering open brand dialogues.

    The implications of these changes are far-reaching, requiring organizations to rebuild their marketing teams and adapt to the evolving landscape of customer engagement in the financial services industry.
