Apparently humans have a shorter attention span than goldfish, thanks to smartphones. How can companies become market leaders, if their customers are busy on snapchat following the latest news / trends? Just selling products via Google Adwords is not enough. Has brand building become the key to success? What do they have to consider when building or maintaining a brand?

VP (Moderator)
Deutsche Bank
In the last five years more than USD 25 bn have been invested in fintech companies. More than 4.000 firms are challenging banks in every product line of their portfolio covering a market share of so far approx. 2%. Although customers’ underlying financial needs did not change a lot, the way in which they want to experience banking services did.

Many banks already have answers to these challenges – with individual solutions and also in partnerships with fintechs. The workshop will focus on the implications of digitalization for the business model of banks and address relevant industry trends. Michael Koch brings in more than 20 years experience in the online and mobile market for private clients, whereas Patrik Pohl focuses on digital products for corporate clients.
