    Chris Skinner Speaker Biography

    Finance speaker Chris Skinner is one of the most influential people in technology. He’s also an independent commentator on the financial markets and fintech through his blog, theFinanser.com. His latest book is called Doing Digital. Above all, it shares the lessons of doing digital transformation learned through interviews with top financial institutions. Those include BBVA, China Merchants Bank, DBS, ING and JPMorgan Chase. ValueWeb describes the impact of Fintech and how mobile and blockchain technologies are changing the face of finance in building an internet of value.

    As a result of the emerging internet of value, banks had to digitalize. Therefore, Chris wrote his bestseller Digital Bank. In it, Chris provides a comprehensive review and analysis of the battle for digital banking and strategies for companies to compete. He also wrote Digital Human, released in March 2018. It builds on these two themes but looks at the wider picture of digitalization. And also on how this is a revolution as it allows everyone from the plains of Africa to the mountains of Tibet to be included.

    In his day job, he is CEO of the Finanser Ltd. The Finanser is a research and media firm focused upon FinTech and the future of finance. He is also Chair of Nordic Future Innovation. Additionally, a Non-Executive Director of the FinTech consultancy firm 11:FS. Lastly, he sits on the advisory boards of many FinTech and financial firms.

    Finance Monthly voted for Chris as the Game Changer of the Year and Financial Markets Advisor of the Year. He has received other awards, such as CEO of the Year by CV Magazine. TMT Global also called him FinTech Speaker of the Year. As an advisor and popular speaker, Chris Skinner clients include the White House, the World Bank and the World Economic Forum.

    Mr. Skinner is a regular commentator on BBC News, Sky News, CNBC and Bloomberg about banking. He is on the Advisory Boards of B-Hive, Bankex, empowr, IoV42, Innovate Finance, Life.SREDA, Moven, Meniga, Pintail, Project Exscudo and the Token Fund; and is a Judge on many awards programs including the Asian Banker’s Retail Excellence Awards, as well as having worked closely with leading banks such as HSBC, the Royal Bank of Scotland, Citibank and Société Générale, as well as the World Economic Forum.

    Chris Skinner Keynote Topics

    For years, banks and industry pundits have bet that cash and bank branches will disappear, yet they are still as strong as ever. Sure, cash and branches are reducing in number, but cash in circulation is still increasing as are the number of bank branches in some countries. So is a branchless, cashless future a reality or a myth?

    Over the next decade, a radical shift will take place in the role and function of banking. It’s already started and it’s all about BIG DATA. But it’s more than that. It’s to do with the value shift in society from seeing money to seeing virtual money; from seeing technology to seeing social technology; and from seeing government to seeing self-governance.

    These shifts have been seeded in smartphones, social networks and the global linkage of every person on the planet to wireless media, and this shift will accelerate over the next decade. What this means for banks is that they will become hybrid keepers of money and data, and anything else their customers believe to be of value.
    They might even be keepers of cloud secure Facebook photo albums … why not?

    In previous ages bankers have sometimes pecked lower in the order of society than lepers. Jesus declared their usurious ways immoral. Amazingly, from this disadvantaged position in society, bankers flourished over the past two centuries before imploding spectacularly both financially and socially in 2008. Bankers now don’t even trust each other.

    This illuminating review of the history and future of banking and society explores why these former outcasts from high society are natural problem children and ponders whether they have a social future and, if so, what will it look like?

    Since PayPal began, we have seen money being digitized. Now mobile is booming, the whole mechanism of money and customer interaction is being revolutionized. Add to this Facebook credits and other virtual currencies, and you soon realize it’s not about money but it’s about value.

    Value management in all its forms – money, knowledge, ideas, time, goods, services, trade – is the critical focus for tomorrow’s institutions. And, as value becomes exchanged in all forms of virtual and physical form, money becomes meaningless. What does it mean for you?

    Banks are like landmines that explode in economic terms, in a similar way in which landmines explode and blow away people in the real world. Just as landmines blow the legs away from humans, banks blow the legs off economies.

    It’s obviously the case that this is true today, what with the Lehmans collapse with Credit Default Swaps creating the first financial crisis; and now sovereign debt in the Eurozone is developing the second.
    How can such economic landmines exist in a world where we should have cleared them by now, and how can we avoid them in the future?
