Talking Points

The Democratisation of Data

Everybody wants data! But do they? The reality is that we’re often drowning in data and we can’t see the wood for the trees. What challenges does the democratisation of data present to today’s business? And how do you overcome those challenges?

Digital Banking and Fintech

Consumer expectations of digital experience are set by technology-first organisations. In this environment, how can banks keep up? All banks want customers to have the greatest digital experience, but not everyone seem to be able to deliver. What differentiates the best from the also rans? And where do fintechs fit in?

Shifting Consumer Sentiment - a 3-year outlook

The cost-of-living crisis is shining a spotlight on the ability of consumers to survive and thrive. How do their spending and borrowing habits impact this and what do we expect to change in the next 3 years. The findings have far-reaching implications for all sectors of the Australian economy.

Building a Successful Team Culture

What are the elements that help define a successful team? And how do you ensure your recruitment and retention approach helps you build towards that? What are the most important elements to look for and to nurture?

Generational Banking - Servicing for Success

Every generation comes with its own myths and legends. We all know Gen Z and Zillenials behave very differently from Baby Boomers, but how do you quantify those differences? And how do you ensure that you provide each with the service and products needed?
