He has spoken to more than a quarter of a million finance professionals in over 40 countries in the last 3 years alone.

The Evolution of the Bank Account: From Passbook to Mobile

In this topic, Brett explores the end-game in the emergence of the mobile wallet and what it means for the humble bank account. With more than 60% of the world’s population without a bank account, with the ubiquitous nature of mobile phone handsets, and the increasingly pervasive pre-paid ‘value-store’, will you need a bank at all in the future? When you can get your Salary paid directly onto your phone, when you iTunes account doubles as a pre-paid debit card, and when you can use Facebook to send money – will banks still be able to compete?

The Big Shift: How Customer Behavior & Technology is Changing Financial Services

Customer behavior is rapidly changing and financial institutions need to reinvent themselves or risk becoming irrelevant. The rules of engagement have changed. Checks are disappearing and cash is next. Mobile phones will replace wallets, consumers and their behaviors have shifted. The industry has to evolve alongside these changes. Brett King shows companies how to adopt and thrive in this new environment. This presentation will give your organization an insight on the three phases of disruptive change and the trends business can’t afford to ignore. You will learn about the evolution of consumer behavior as King examines the trends, innovations and technologies that are likely to have the most significant impact over the next decade. In addition, you will understand the key issues that choke the development of innovation across organizations and learn how to identify the quick wins that can justify improvement programs.

AUGMENTED: Life In The Smart Lane

With technological advancement and the smartphone, we have entered the Augmented Age. We have already begun the behavioral shifts and changes- self driving cars, VR, mobile and apps monitoring health and finance- that will continue to adjust as we come to be evermore interactive with machines. I will explain how the Augmented Age can be encountered through four disruptive technologies -Artificial Intelligence, Experience Design, Health Tech and Smart Infrastructure. Interactive technology- How does Experience Design change Health Tech? How will AI change our Infrastructure? And how will the Internet of Things interact with the internet of us. What will AI and Robots really mean? Will robots take our jobs, and AI’s subsume us as inferior intelligences, or will this usher in a new age of abundance? This is a presentation on future history, and the story about how we will live in a world that will change more in the next 20 years than it has in the last 250 years.

BANK 4.0: Banking Everywhere but a Bank

We already know that banking is something you do and not somewhere you go. But as we see the emphasis on web turn to mobile turn to voice turn to AI, we have run into a glut of confusing innovation with reiteration. What are the First Principles of design and experience? Are we reiterating old solutions without realizing that new tech may have eliminated the need and changed the landscape of the problems? How do we shed legacy technology that isn’t serving us, and embrace technologies as they appear without wasting money on reiteration and avoiding clunky transition? How do we keep First Principles at the core of serving customers and growing our business?

The Rise of Techno-Socialism

While it may not feel like it, in the last 200 years, technological innovation has vastly improved society, increasing general wealth, health, and bettering the human condition. In 1800, 45% of infants died and 90% of people were illiterate, but today, infant mortality is 4.3% and 85% of the world can read. And by the year 2100, every single child will receive a formal education. Technologies like AI, Gene-Editing, Solar Energy, Autonomous Transport, etc.will usher in a new abundance but also cause significant socio-economic shifts. How can governments react to a time when technology promises to deliver the benefits of so-called socialism, at a fraction of the cost of the most capitalist, democratic governments today? How do we plan for the automated future when we realize robots have taken over much of old economy labor? How can we plan educations around the future of learning quickly, unlearning, and learning again? How will society react when we can use technology to provide everyone with a basic income, healthcare, and education, for less than the cost of building a political movement to sell us the idea that universal care is a bad thing?

Building a Bank for Gen-Y & Digital Natives

Moven is a revolutionary new bank that launched to much acclaim in 2012. This is the story of how near-banks like Moven, Simple, GoBank and others are revolutionizing retail banking on multiple fronts. Brett King tells the story of why Moven decided on a card-less, paper-less, transparent model of banking and how CREDScore, Gamification and the real-time feedback loop is going to change the way we think about banking. If players like Moven achieve what they are aiming for, it will change the way people think about banking forever. King will share his journey from conception to creation of Moven, what organizations can learn from the Moven story, why selling a checking account may kill your retail bank in the next 5 years and why Gen-Y don’t write checks, don’t visit branches and don’t trust banks.
