This year’s theme is all about the emerging world of Me2B!
We have some outstanding keynote speakers, and in other sessions will be exploring the below themes in detail.

Opening Keynote: Antony Jenkins from 10x

GDPR for Growth
Realising that regulation is an opportunity, not a burden

General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a welcome first step in creating an environment fit for the digital age. It is vital in ensuring individual privacy and consent in the data age.

It is also a chance for businesses to sail ahead of competitors – to become their industry’s Netflix and leave rivals behind.

Less than one year out, businesses are choosing from one of three approaches to prepare for GDPR. Option one sees businesses do the minimum they can to be compliant, including accepting the odd fine from the Information Commissioner Office. The second is more pragmatic, ensuring full compliance with no prospect of fines.

However, the third is the rarest – and the most visionary. It is an option being taken by business leaders who are using GDPR as an opportunity to create new services, to use the regulation as a competitive advantage. These leaders are using GDPR for Growth.

The Future of Finance
Finance is broken and personal data is the big disruptor

Consumers have been bound to traditional banks offering traditional services – no longer. Finance is being turned on its head by challenger banks, mobile banking and online-only banking.

So, just what does finance’s future hold?

Strategic threats and opportunities are often a major constraint for businesses, we are seeing immense pressure on existing business models for banks and insurers, where this tectonic data shift is breaking finance and opening opportunities for all sectors.

In such a challenging world, how can your business create transformational experiences for customers? How can it innovate at pace and stay ahead of the competition, new and old?

The Future of Finance will make sense of the changing industry. It will analyse the fundamentals of a customer data strategy and how a strategy enables you to not only keep pace, but get ahead. The session will discuss the vital digital services that must be delivered to ensure transformational customers experiences.

At PIE2017 we are bringing together business leaders from traditional banks, challenger banks, and leading insurers to debate, discuss and inspire.

The Future of Work
Will we reach a point where robots will compete with humans for jobs?

We are living through a tsunami of technological change; its waves are attacking the foundations of our society. Its scale and pace are profoundly changing how we live and work, causing fundamental shifts across all disciplines, economies and industries.

These developments are prompting widespread anxiety about the role of humans in the new world. As the tsunami’s pace accelerates, so the alarm levels ratchet up. Each wave washes up the same question, what about the Future of Work?

This session will argue that we are experiencing a golden age for AI, machine learning and robotics. It will explore how the demand for digital skills will create the need for better skills matching and development. It will argue that the key to getting this right is using personal info to create, and the creation of a responsive, digitised system that matches your skills, aspirations and experience to the market need.

PIE2017 will bring together expert speakers to analyse how young people, business and society can prepare for the robots.

Race to the Top
The digital revolution is creating a world that is constantly connected and innovating. How will businesses survive?

Personal information is often treated as ‘toxic waste’ to be managed so as to reduce risk. Releasing it to create value for your customers, creates an increase in trust which in turn creates an opportunity to share more information, which in turn offers the opportunity to create more value. But why does value matter?

This is the moment time, how businesses make money is going to radically change, its’ a race to the top for businesses, those that grasp the opportunity will win customers, and build sustainable market positions their competitors will not be able to touch!

Join us at PIE2017 to learn what the building blocks are, where to start and how to win the race.
