Bristol FinTech Event 27 April 2017

Date: April 27 | Time: 14.00 – 17.03 | Venue: 2 Glass Wharf, Bristol BS2 0FR

Join us on 27 April for the next in the series of Bristol FinTech events.

We’ll be bringing together key influencers, decision makers and support networks for FinTech across the South West, with 2 clear aims:

  1. To use the Bristol FinTech ‘hive mind’ to solve some specific business challenges
  2. To give you a valuable opportunity to meet with organisations that can support business growth in the region

Our agenda, as below, runs from 14:00 until 17:30 and will be followed by networking drinks. Our hosts are PwC, conveniently located behind Bristol Temple Meads station.

Keynote – 35 years of customer centric and technology enabled advice – the HL journey – Chris Worle, Hargreaves Lansdown

Hargreaves Lansdown is the UK’s number 1 ‘investment supermarket’ for private investors. Based in Bristol, where they now employ over 1,000 people, they are today trusted with more than £70.0 billion by 876,000 clients.

Arguably, the first FinTech, they give individuals the tools and information to make informed decisions. From an award-winning website and app, giving access to investments anytime, to a specialist helpdesk.

Chris Worle tells the story of how this market-leading firm developed over time, challenges faced and overcome, support at crucial moments and how being in Bristol has helped.

Workshops – facing FinTech challenges together       

Two workshop sessions where we’ll be getting the creative juices flowing and giving you the opportunity to work together on a specific business challenge.

No question (or organisation) too big or small for this opportunity. What’s that query that’s been niggling and needs exploring? That product idea that needs some wider scrutiny? That customer need that could benefit from a broader perspective?

Let us know and this session could help work towards and answer for you!

If your challenge is chosen, you’ll benefit from expert facilitation and the input of the hive mind.

Networking – discovering the individuals that can support you in the region

A session to introduce some of the ways in which organisations here in the South West can, and do, support the FinTech community here, and what they can do for you.

Join us for a networking style event bringing together everyone across industry, research and academia, influences etc.
