Guest Speakers: Matt Sek, Director - Product & Commercial Strategy, Airwallex & Matt King, Head of Strategy, Prospa
The word ‘ecosystem’ may not have been used to describe the Australian financial services industry a few years ago. However, driven by customer demand, technology and regulation (e.g. open finance), there is a massive shift in the way financial services and adjacent participants in the SMB ecosystem are working together to create new revenue streams, deliver innovative offerings and improve customer experience. The question isn’t should they, but moreover where should they play, and who should they play with? In this webinar, the panelists will explore the opportunities and challenges in a changing SMB financial services ecosystem.
