The COVID-19 crisis has impacted both humanity and business in an instantaneous and dramatic way. But, while each pandemic throughout history has been unique, each has brought about massive changes in the way we live, the priorities we set, how we interact and the businesses that emerge. Survival is a great motivator for change. As a result, pandemics have always led to innovations that have changed our lives.
We have already seen the increased reliance on remote working, contactless commerce, video engagement and new forms of entertainment. We have also seen a disruption across financial services.
Today, we are joined by Richard Turrin, financial technology consultant and best-selling author of the book, ‘Innovation Lab Excellence: Digital Transformation from Within’. With a history as a banker and the head of IBM’s innovation lab in Singapore, Richard explains why COVID-19 will fuel the next wave of innovation in banking.
