Digital Transformation of Finance and Business
In Conversation with Ashok Vaswani, CEO, Barclays UK
Business and Technology Special Interest Group event

Banking and finance is changing at a rapid rate due to changes in technology and business models. There is also a broader business transformation  as money becomes mobile and potentially virtual with cryptocurrency.

Barclays traces its history back to 1690 and is now at the forefront of change with initiatives such as Barclays Eagle Labs, Digital Eagles, Incubators and new solutions like PingIt. As Ashok Vaswani, our speaker and CEO of Barclays UK, has said Barclays is becoming a tech business with a balance sheet. 

You are warmly invited to come and listen to our speakers discuss the transformation of banking and the industry. 

Alumni, students and guests are all very welcome.
