Emerging technology and business models in a COVID world

Tuesday 6 October, 9.00am - 10.00am 

The world of payments was undergoing steady technological transformation even before COVID-19, but some of these changes have now accelerated. Many organisations are having to adapt or change their business models again to fit the times. This new environment has the potential to open even more innovation opportunities, especially for next-generation financial services. As Kiwis leave behind older or more traditional ways of doing things, they will be looking to emerging technologies and new business models, all of which have payments at the core of it.

In session three, we’ll look at the ways COVID-19 is driving and accelerating business transformation. Tom Goodwin, international keynote speaker and commentator on the future of business, will be joining us from the US as our first speaker. Tom will talk about the emerging technologies and new business models the payments industry should be aware of, and will discuss different ways to approach innovation.  

Dave Corbett, CEO of P^werFinance, will then join us to discuss their new B2B2C fintech platform which allows anyone to innovate in finance. The platform enables New Zealand businesses to grow their finance offerings by integrating it into their existing customer experience journeys to improve the overall experience.
