The Future of Money - Money is Meaningless?
Background:Fresh from his work at SIBOS, the Global Industry Forum for Payments, Chris will share his comprehensive experience of the payments industry and share his unique insights into how he foresees the world of payments developing over the next few years.
Since PayPal began, we have seen money being digitised. Now mobile is booming, the whole mechanism of money and customer interaction is being revolutionised. Add to this Facebook credits and other virtual currencies, and you soon realise 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?
