About the event

We are pleased to invite you to Digital Banking Kenya 2017, an exclusive banking technology and innovation forum, on Thursday, Nov 16, 2017.

Your customers are experiencing accelerated digital lives, supported in particular by rapid internet penetration, increasing smartphone adoption and an ever expanding network of networks. How can Kenyan banks sustain and grow their business in the face of increasing digital disruption and new customer demands? Banks will need to re-imagine the banking business and find innovative ways engage customers, while embracing a TrulyDigital persona.

However, our research indicates that close to 70% of banks around the world do not have a systematic digital strategy and most are confused as to what constitutes TrulyDigital.

At this event, our global subject matter experts and leaders from the Kenyan banking industry will discuss what constitutes TrulyDigital banking and share insights to recognize exciting new possibilities for growth from the ongoing digital disruption. In focus will be specific topics like block-chain, biometric based authentication, digital core renewal and predictive analytics, among others, and their implications for banking.

We look forward to meeting you at the Digital Banking Kenya 2017.
