The Sepia Dinner

An exclusive dinner discussion for leaders in the Australian lending and financial service sector

Our chairperson, Mr. Mark McGrath, lead the discussion, before opening it out to the floor. The topics were:

  1. Innovators are driving disruption in the Financial Services industry like never before. These disruptors are targeting the “soft under belly” of traditional banks & lending institutions in the lucrative business & personal lending space. What is your institution doing to stave off and compete with them?
  2. Many of the disruptors in Fintech are using technology to deliver improvements in costs and customer experiences. What have you seen that is disturbing or challenging your market share?
  3. With 71% of Millennials preferring to see their dentist, rather than deal with a bank (according to a recent study) – how will your organization change this attitude?

7:10 pm: Dinner discussion on “The evolution of customer experience in the financial service sector” initiated by the moderator and continued by the group
